Kinder Camp is a full day camp for campers eligible for Kindergarten in the fall. We feel this is a special group of campers who need some fun, caring attention. They will 'camp' at the Blake Center (next to the Y) and enjoy the outdoor playground geared for them, the large indoor play gym, daily swimming, special events, nature walks, arts & crafts, cooking, weekly themes, outdoor water play and more!

Bring your bagged lunch and we provide the morning and afternoon snack.

Daily swim lessons available on a first come first serve basis for $40 per week -
Sign up at registration.
The campers will have recreational swim provided they are in camp the day of their recreational swim.
