About our Warthogs Day Camp

Rising Kindergarten and 1st grade campers are ready to venture a little further afield and will have a few choices in their Day Camp activities. They experience the outdoors daily, learn through nature exploration, STEM, music, dance, art, sports, story time, water games, field trips, and carefully conceived, self-directed play. Most academic activities happen in the morning, with the choice activities in the afternoon.

The activities of each week are tied to a unique, exciting theme, are led by qualified teachers and assisted by energetic, young interns. In addition to the daily activities, there will be a weekly field trip. 

Before and After Care available at registration.
