JUNIOR GENERAL CAMP (SK AND GRADE 1)
Early registration is recommended!
This is a full day, outdoor, very active program. Campers may only be registered if they have completed JK. Campers must be entering SK or Grade 1 to qualify for this program.
Who is this program for?
Junior General Camp is suitable for campers who are finished JK and who are registering for either SK or Grade 1 in the fall.
Junior Camp is wonderful for campers in this age group due to the smaller number of campers, the kinds of activities we provide and the way that the schedule has been structured. Jr camp will have some aquatic fun on our waterslides, and sprinklers, and they will have some fun time in the shallow area of our beach! Aquatic activities are scheduled for Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays – however – we ask that you send swim gear every day just in case the heat is high and the opportunity to splash around during an unscheduled time presents itself.
Junior General Camp provides a smaller ratio of care, smooth transitions, a supportive environment with lots of TLC, assistance with the basics like keeping track of belongings, and help with making connections with fellow campers.
All campers who are entering SK and Grade 1 will register for Junior General Camp upon registration.
Junior General Camp is perfect for campers from this age bracket who LOVE being outdoors and active. This is a very active program and we are outdoors all day every day! Please email us to ask any questions you might have about the program. We want to ensure that you have all of the information that you need when deciding if Kids Inc Camp is the right program for your camper.
What is this program about?
Kids Inc Camp is a summer camp that is all about creating memories for our campers, camp families, and staff that can last a lifetime! We hope to inspire life-long activity, respect for the environment, love of recreation and fun, and relationships that will last a lifetime.
This program is 100% outdoors. We have sheltered areas that provide rain shelter and shade – however – your camper must be dressed for the weather each and every day.
Junior General Camp includes: Crafts, puppets, story time, sports and movement based activity time, free play time, creative play, music, yoga, nature, forest games and more!
We do have some theme based activities and some periods that are more structured in how they are presented, we do also provide play based child led discovery periods. The balance of structure and discovery is sure to please every Jr General Camper!
There will be sprinklers, waterslides and water play and some shallow water and beach free play at our pond from time to time incorporated into the program and so we do ask that you send your camper ready for the water every day. We encourage you on the days that water based activities are planned to send your camper already wearing their swim gear. This would be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We will provide life jackets when they are required that will be warn at all time when Jr General Campers need them due to proximity to water of any depth.
Each day will consist of activity blocks, 2 snack times and a lunch break. Please send your camper with sunscreen and bug spray already applied.
