Nursery School, Pre-K and K

The Owls Nest is an exciting and engaging introduction to camp, providing a wide range of creative activities in a safe and nurturing environment. The varied activities are designed to encourage a camper’s social, artistic and physical development in ways that are fun and exciting and will keep them engaged throughout the day.

Owls Nest campers are placed in age appropriate groups known as nests. Each nest has 12–16 campers and 3–4 counselors (a counselor/camper ratio of 1:4). Campers are grouped by the year they will enter kindergarten and with awareness of their social, emotional and developmental stage.

All campers must be toilet trained prior to the start of camp.

HALF DAY OPTIONS

The Owls Nest program offers two options: either 9 am–2 pm or 9 am–4 pm.

For campers who attend 9 am–2 pm, there is an option to Stay and Play. For an additional fee, campers have the option of staying in their nest on a daily or weekly basis until 4 pm.

Campers who Stay and Play will remain in their group with their counselors and friends. They will also have a free swim and an extra activity block.

You can select the days you want but Stay and Play requires registration. You can pre-register in advance on the registration form or you can call the camp office a week before the date you would like to book.
