For children ages 3-5 years, Kinder Camp is an exciting blend of games, activities and chances to see zoo animals while limiting the distance traveled to accommodate little legs. Each day campers will explore the zoo with a different theme focus such as colors, numbers, families and more. Campers attending full-day Kinder Camp will have a quiet time opportunity during which the children can rest/nap or participate in quiet individual activities or group stories.
This program is ideal for children prior to entering Kindergarten. Kindergartners are welcome to attend Kinder Camp, but may also want to explore Zooper Day Camp. Children must be fully potty trained. North and South End curricula are offered each week throughout the summer.
