CANCELLED 2020: Tenderfoot Camp

Tenderfoot Camp provides recreational activities specially attuned to the interests of 3 to 6 year old children. The program focuses on social development, independence, and curiosity. These programs are designed to both nurture new friendships and strengthen self-esteem. As children grow, they are encouraged by our supportive staff to broaden their experiences and see what the world around them has to offer. Camp facilitators place emphasis on cooperation among children rather than competition. Placed in coeducational groups by age, the children learn to work alongside one another in alternative learning environments, thus stimulating holistic social and intellectual growth.

Theme Weeks

Campers anticipate the excitement of our weekly thematic activities.  Our counselors develop their curriculum around a particular theme that culminates on Friday at an all-camp assembly. A few of these themes have included: Friendship Week, Animal Week, and International Week. Education and fun go hand-in-hand in every Theme Week.  

An online blog keeps parents informed about all the latest camp news and thematic events.
