All Set for Summer - What's that, not quite?

You’ve enrolled your grade schoolers in summer camp and you're feeling good about marking that off your list as we are now careening into the end of the school year.  Yay!
 
But now, what to do with your preschooler?
 
If you’re a stay at home mom, there’s always the option of keeping your preschooler home for summer.  Consider though, if you’re up for that and if it’s really what’s best for your child.  How will the break affect the progress your child has made or needs to make to transition to school?  Are you setting yourself up for agonizing separation anxiety after a whole summer of one on one with mommy?
 
If your child is enrolled in preschool, you may be looking at options there, as many preschools do offer summer programs.  While it may sound like a no brainer, check them out carefully!  Preschool programs are often little more than glorified day care. 
 
Then you’ve got your “big kid” camps, which will sometimes take younger kids but check the age limits and whether they really have programs for younger campers or if they’re just excluding little ones from activities where they might be hurt.  You want to be sure your preschooler is getting the extra attention younger children need.  So what to do? 
 
We say, bring them to us!  Especially if you have other kids enrolled with us already.  You’ll enjoy a multi child discount and get the best camp experience for all of your children!  At Camp Keystone our Junior Camp is specifically designed for preschoolers ages 3-5.  Smaller group size and higher staff to camper ratios ensure individualized attention.  With consideration for development, skill and motor coordination, our Junior Campers are challenged and engaged at their own level.  Our program exposes Junior Campers to activities which provide enrichment experiences, develop independence, socialization skills and confidence as well as a sense of camp and community.
 
When back to school rolls around in the fall, your preschooler will return with valuable experiences and life skills to help them face new challenges with added confidence.
 
Guess what?  If your campers ride the bus, we have defined Junior Camper sections on our buses with car seats and designated Junior Camp staff to see that each Junior Camper is attended to.
 
You can count on Camp Keystone to provide a nurturing and positive environment for all of our campers.  We look forward to seeing you soon!
