They’re the most fun, the most magical, the most squirmy and they’re the future of camp. Here’s how to rock your preschool camp programming!
Pre-Schoolers are the little saplings of day camp. Show them and their families a good time, and you have an annuity that can last a decade.
That said, they are completely different on so many levels, compared to elementary and middle schoolers. Today we’ll deep dive into the world of the littlest people in our camps
Tune in to this episode to hear about camp programming, the arts, games, special events, facilitation tricks and MORE - all for the wee ones!

Day Camp Tip of the Week
Andy: Skip’s Rubber Duckie idea: Give every kid a rubber duckie, put them in the shallow part of the pool, and tell the kids to go and get them! It will get them right in the pool!
Sam: Perspective training - Line staff up, and every other one kneels down to give the staff the perspective of a pre-schooler looking up with their counsellors. That’s why we get down on one knee!
Tiff: Taking your current curriculum and make it age-appropriate for every level to make sure everyone feels seen and related to.
