How is your preschooler spending the long lazy days of summer? Join us at Half-Day Adventures, where your child can use their imagination to create projects that are a reflection of their own unique talents. Summer activities, science projects, and arts and crafts encourage children to learn and practice their skills, and gain experience working with a wide variety of materials. Our large playground offers plenty of opportunity for engaging in sports and active play. Most of all, your child will be having fun meeting and making new friends, so come along, and join in the fun and adventure of summer camp!
Each week will offer a different theme with fun activities appropriate for children ages 3 to 5 years old. Your child can be an explorer, artist, builder, athlete, superhero and so much more! The children will have arts and crafts, splash time at the Winchester Splash Park, story-time with ROAR (a reading program with the Winchester Library), performances by Kid Stock, weekly appearances from the Music Man and good old fashion FUN! Our caring, devoted and loving staff will offer many diverse activities such as songs, games, sports, science fun, face painting, and lots of outdoor and water play. Child-to-counselor ratio is approximately 6:1. Campers must be potty-trained.
Notes to Parent:We will be going to the Splash Park at Borggaard beach every Friday by bus. Pick up will be at the Splash park at 12:15 PM
