Little Explorers Camp – Where The Summer Adventure Begins

posted in: Articles | 0

For nearlyLittle Explorers Camp - Where The Summer Adventure Begins ten summers the North Shore Country Day Summer Programs have been offering a camp program for the youngest of campers –Little Explorers Camp. This program was created to give our youngest campers a sampling of “big kids” camp. Everyone knows that summer camp can be great for school-age kids. Camp gives kids the opportunity to make friends, learn new skills, have adventures, and get some exercise. It gets them outdoors and encourages active play. All the reasons stated above apply to our 3-year-old campers as well! While this age might sound too young, there are some pros to consider, especially if your child will be entering preschool or kindergarten in the fall.

Little Explorers Camp is a great “practice run” for kids who don’t have a lot of experience being away from home.  It gives campers a chance to be independent (all the while being cared for closely by well-trained staff). Little Explorers Camp is also a wonderful opportunity to introduce children to a whole new group of friends. Young children’s social circles may be limited and summer camp is an opportunity to expand their base of friends. It allows children to practice making friends and interact with other children from diverse backgrounds. It also gives children the freedom to make friends on their own.

Camp can provide structure for the youngest of camper. In our Little Explorers Camp children are introduced to important concepts like following a schedule, learning group rules, taking responsibility for their belongings, and getting along with others in a group setting. They participate in new activities and learn new skills. Our Little Explorers campers have fun while practicing important skills like teamwork, coordination, self-confidence and learning and following rules. They will learn more about the outdoors and have fun in a variety of structured play activities.

You are never too young (or old for that matter) for camp. At North Shore we believe in starting the adventures early in life knowing that our campers will learn so much from their experience with us.
