Kinder Camp (Ages 2-6)

Kinder Camp is a place where children and staff work together to ensure that each child…

  • develops a positive self-image, age appropriate skills, positive, trusting relationships, natural curiosity, and a creative potential.
  • is accepted as an individual.
  • increases competence in dealing with physical coordination, emotional feelings, social situations, communication skills and ideas.
  • is finding out about getting along in a group – sharing and caring
  • is developing skills that help increase self confidence.

Kinder Camp is for the youngest child, age 2-6 years. Only the children who have completed Kindergarten are eligible for Junior Camp.  Parents of children participating in Kinder Camp must provide a car seat for travel. Campers spend part of their time at Pepperhill Day School and a part of the time at the camp.

 Sample Daily Schedule

When the children stay at the school they enjoy our air-conditioned facilities while doing cooking, arts ‘n’ crafts, music, dramatic play, science, and water tables. Our well-equipped playground is a favorite for all campers!
