The "Chipmunk" summer program is geared towards children 3-5 years of age who are entering Kindergarten this Fall. The program will be under the direction of experienced staff.  All children attending MUST BE POTTY TRAINED. We do not have the facilities to change diapers or pull ups.
The activities planned will provide directives in the areas of physical play, arts & crafts, and swimming. Children are divided into age groups overseen by the program director, counselors and waterfront staff. Activities offered include board and field games, hiking, swimming and arts & crafts.

Every Wednesday

For those that are staying after 1pm Kona Ice truck will be arriving in the afternoon. Kona Ice will be serving free shaved ice to all the children registered in our program.  

Each week of our program has a theme and plan special programming is developed around each theme.  We will send home notices about dressing up as your favorite character, animal, super hero etc.  If you have questions about the themes you can contact the office or ask a counselor.
