Camp Club Groups
Fishies: Ages 3 & 4
Fishies is a special adventure where cherished friendships and memories are made. This half-day 5 days/week program features a careful amount of age-appropriate group activities. Our Fishies acquire new skills by participating in swimming, nature study, sports, games, art, music, and drama. They grow emotionally, socially, and intellectually relating to their peers and trained, caring adults. To participate, Fishies must be fully potty-trained.
Dragonflies: Ages 5 & 6
For campers entering Kindergarten and First Grade. As our young campers “graduate” into Dragonflies, they begin to build independence in a supportive environment. This full day program includes swimming, tennis and golf lessons, lawn bowling, music instruction, drama, art, sports, and nature activities. Camp Fire nights and field trips are added to the program.
Bullfrogs: Ages 7 & 8
For campers entering 2nd and 3rd grade. Campers never run out of new challenges and adventures in Bullfrogs. Emphasis is on individual skill development while working in a group setting. The group features participation in lawn bowling, music, drama, sports, and nature activities, with special events and overnights included in the program. There is an increased focus on swimming, tennis, golf, and team building as well as some friendly competition.
Bears: Ages 9 – 11
For campers entering 4th, 5th, and 6th grades.
