DAY CAMP PROGRAMS

Toddler Day Camp

Toddler Day Camp: Ages 2-3 years

You’ve heard them say their first word. You’ve seen them take their first step. They are growing and changing by leaps and bounds. Now they are ready to go to camp. We welcome you to share their first camp experience with us at Park Shore. Your child will experience a wealth of fun, exploration, and excitement in a safe and secure environment. Supervised by Dianne Vitucci, our Education Director, our Toddler Summer Camp Program is filled with many exciting experiences that your toddler will love.

 

Your child will be supervised and cared for by one of our Preschool teachers and her staff. Our outstanding Toddler Summer Camp Program for children ages 2 – 3 is designed to create an atmosphere of warmth, security, discovery, and fun. One of the most important aspects of our Toddler Program is the social experience. Each day your child will experience a variety of activities to help stimulate and foster his/her developmental growth. Swimming, Music & Movement, Arts & Crafts, Sports, Nature, Baking & Cooking, and Dance are a daily part of our program.

Healthy nutritious snacks and lunch are served daily to all children. The camp group size is limited and kept small to ensure the safest environment and proper supervision for your child. You may choose either three or five days. Bus transportation is available upon request.
