Junior Day Camp – Full Day – Palisades


For many of our Junior Day Campers, we are their first camp experience. So we go above and beyond to make sure both campers and parents feel comfortable – from our friendly carpool drop off, to our daily blog updates and photos, to our highly-trained staff. We work with teachers and child development experts to create a dynamic program that focuses on school readiness, emphasizing fine motor development, following multi-step directions, expanding expressive vocabulary, and promoting persistence, all while offering the best of summer camp! Your child will do everything from arts & crafts to STEM to instructional swim, as well as have the opportunity to make friends and learn skills to increase his or her independence.

Fantastic Beasts Found

Mermaids and unicorns and dragons… oh my! Let your imagination run as far as a centaurs gallop and as high as a dragon’s flight can take you. If you can imagine it, it can happen at Headfirst! During this magical week, we’ll explore the legendary creatures and objects of some of our favorite tall tales as we blur the lines between fact and fantasy. And don’t worry, there won’t just be fairies for these fairy tales – there’s something for everybody this week!

Fun at the Fair

Come one, come all – the State Fair is here at Headfirst and each state is ready to wow! The big top tent is pitched, the animals and performers are all here. Now, all we need is you here so we can begin! With representatives from each corner of our nation, we’ll discover what every region has to offer. Come give it a whirl, this camp only comes to town once a year!

Community Yelpers

Is your camper ready for a ruff ruff rescue? We’ll need all paws on deck this week! Whether your camper can build like Rubble, fly like Skye or save the day like Marshall we’ll be sure to use and celebrate their unique skills as we help them continue to transform into their personal best! And remember – whenever you’re in trouble just yelp for help!

There’s Snow Place Like Camp

Yoo-Hoo! Big summer blowout! Maybe the cold never bothered you anyway, but it doesn’t feel much like summer with the icy grips of winter here at Headfirstandelle. Could it be that emotional Elsa is back? If so, she’s going to need some help channeling her emotions and power for good… from YOU! Afterall, some Headfirst friends are totally worth melting for…

Headfirst Heroes

You don’t need to be bitten by a spider or come from Planet Krypton to have the power within to be a positive force in the world! That’s why this camp focuses on more than just the traditional fun and whimsy of well-known superheroes. It also touches on the importance of civic duty and community engagement to help our campers understand that each and every one of us plays an important role in keeping our community safe and thriving. Through projects, story immersion, and group activities, our campers will be ready to take their own super talents “up, up and away” to save the day!

Welcome to CAMPelot

Hold on to your helmets, this week is sure to be worthy of a crown! No need to scale the castle walls or journey across a moat to be among royalty – your camper will develop the leadership skills to be the King or Queen of their own court! Along the way, we’ll be sure to play games with jesters, joust with knights and feast and dance with medieval merriment!


This camp includes a daily instructional swim with goals that are kid-specific, from jumping into the deep end to side breathing. Your child will be carefully supervised at all times, with a 3:1 child-to-staff ratio in the pool and swim progress reports will be sent home to parents.
