Chase’s Preschool Camp

 

If you are looking for a half or full day program for your beginning campers. The EGGS are the place to be! Age appropriate activities providing ample exploration of what camping is all about. For these little wanderers there is a quiet siesta time for literacy. All campers must be able to use the bathrooms independent with minimal assistance as our camp does not have those capabilities.

3 Year Olds

Hours:  9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. for campers entering preschool in the fall. This half day program introduces campers to their first camping experience. Campers are able to be dropped off anytime after 7:00 a.m. but are not permitted to take part in bus transportation. These campers get to swim 1-2 times a week while wearing a camp-provided life vest in a lifeguard monitored area.

 

4 Year Olds

Hours: 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. for campers in preschool but not entering Kindergarten. These campers can be dropped off as early as 7 a.m. for AM Care and picked up as late as 6 p.m. for PM Care. The half day and full day programs are both available for campers who are 4 but not yet entering kindergarten. This program provides campers a structured schedule allowing for exploration of the 80 acres of land and various camp activities such as rockwall, swimming, and the jumping pillow. These campers can use a camp life vest for swimming.
