At Camps ‘R’ Us, our early childhood programs are designed to be a great starting point for young Campers to explore the wonders of the summer camp experience.
With structured play, planned activities, scheduled events, and so much more, the fun and excitement abounds every day at camp.
Tiny Tots is designed to complement the unique complexities of early childhood, and introduces 3 and 4 year olds to their first camp experience in a warm, caring, and supportive environment. The program is designed to develop a positive self-concept, while focusing on creativity, motor-skill development and imagination.
Our qualified teachers create an atmosphere of acceptance where the individual social, intellectual and emotional needs of each child are considered and supported.
The program is derived from the developmental approach to early childhood education that places emphasis on learning skills based outside of the classroom setting, which are geared to each child’s stage of readiness and development.
Our approach to learning recognizes the tremendous capacity and desire of the young child to discover and explore the environment of their immediate world, enabling them to covert natural curiosity into the 12-month learning process.
Campers thrive in an exceptionally supportive camp environment, with small group sizes, age appropriate curriculum, and an introduction to a wide variety of small and large motor activities.
Tiny Tots includes Campers 3 and 4 years old, who have not yet completed Preschool. All Campers must be fully toilet trained for camp. “Fully toilet trained” means that the child independently asks to go to the bathroom when needed, can sit themselves on the toilet, is able to wipe themselves, flush, and wash their hands.
We offer a balanced, age-appropriate curriculum for 5 and 6 year old Campers, or who have completed Preschool or Kindergarten. Some 4 year old Campers are welcomed to KinderKamp if they have completed Pre-K.
Our KinderKamp program offers a natural progression for Campers who are ready to take on the challenges of more complex activities, with new and exciting experiences designed to bridge the wonder of early childhood with the aspirational arc of our grade-based programs.
