Junior Day Camp – Full Day – Palisades

Overview

Our Junior Day Camp will excite your child’s imagination through hands-on activities in art, music and sensory play. This program gives younger children the perfect opportunity to grow their listening and transition skills, as well as practice independence within our lively camp atmosphere. Our story-based approach invites active, thoughtful play as campers fully immerse themselves in the theme of the week, from decorations to costumes to crafts. Lots of outdoor time and perennial favorites such as story time and group games round off this wonderful first-camp experience. We make the transition to camp easy on parents as well, with our best-in-class staff and easy carpool drop off!

Swim

Weekly Themes

Finding Your Inner Magic

Like the Madrigal family from Disney Pixar’s Encanto, we each possess our own power, made stronger by our communities!  By exploring the mystery of magic and illusion, we will learn about the power that our special skills bring to our own lives and the world around us. Get ready to work your magic!

Antarctic Adventure

Campers will enjoy a snow-filled week as they help an Emperor Penguin traverse the Antarctic Circle to relocate his colony. They’ll learn about life in the south pole, find a safe location where the penguin’s colony can thrive, and help him navigate back home.  Along the way, they’ll learn about different types of Antarctic and Arctic animals, paint watercolors of the Northern lights, and much more.  There’s “snow” place like camp!

Exploring Our Elements

Earth, wind, fire, and water seem so different from one another – but are they really? Motivated by Disney Pixar’s new film, Elemental, campers will explore what makes each element unique, how they work together to make our world beautiful, and how we, too, are each made of many incredible elements that all work together!

Friends in Flight

It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s Headfirst campers! By exploring animals, insects, machines, and homemade crafts that take wing, your camper will discover there’s more than one way to soar this summer!

Budding Builders

This week, campers will be tasked with creating a structure to help provide shade for Headfirst’s beloved mascot, Gomer. They’ll have to work together, using tools and materials, through all stages of building, including visualizing, planning and creating their structure. Campers should bring their favorite tool belts and blueprints, along with their most creative thinking, to this exciting architectural challenge!

Savannah Safari

Headfirst’s trusty mascot, Gomer, would like to discover what animals might be roaming the earth that he doesn’t know about yet. So he decides to go on Safari to the Sahara, exploring a new-to-him location that many creatures call home, and bring our campers with him! After all, curiosity creates confidence, and what better way to become more confident than to learn about different creatures firsthand? But when he encounters some pesky poachers, he and the campers will have to come up with a plan to save all of the amazing animals they’ve met. Can these campers save the day?

Prehistoric Playtime

It’s hard to see your own awesomeness when you’re constantly comparing yourself to the mighty reptiles that once ruled the earth… just ask Lizzy the Lizard! You don’t have to be the strongest, fastest or even most aesthetically pleasing creature to be great and admired, every being has something amazing worth celebrating.
