Junior Day Camp

Our Junior Day Camp offers our youngest campers the opportunity to sample all the fun and excitement of their very first summer camp experience. We focus on keeping campers outdoors as much as possible as they rotate through activities including music, sports and storytime, as well as playground time. These young campers are able to practice important skills for building independence, such as listening to directions and transitioning from one activity to the next. They’ll also be eligible to earn the coveted Headfirst Icees for exhibiting traits like optimism, grit and resiliency. Our highly-trained staff and easy carpool drop off make the transition to camp fun and easy for parents as well.

Why We're Different

For each week of camp, we create a dynamic, immersive story based on a theme, such as Superheroes, Dinosaurs, or the Arctic. Then, through the world we’ve created, campers enjoy activities and games designed to strengthen qualities like grit and optimism. To the kids, it feels like camp. But we know we’re accomplishing more. Check out our unique Super Six curriculum to learn how we help build character through story and play.
