A summer camp specifically for 2, 3, 4, & 5 year olds.
“I also have my own memories of your camp as it was my first camp experience as a mother dropping off my precious babies onto that huge campus for the first time as they looked at me with those big eyes – “Mom, why are you leaving?” – tears rolling down their little faces and I really came to trust you when you took them out of the back seat each morning but I knew that they were going to be ok. You were right when you said that you do have a sense of family at your camp. That is something unique about Little Buds that I know will carry on because it’s the PEOPLE who make up the heart of your camp. And you have a lot of heart!!”
~ Janice (camp mom)
We believe our youngest campers (ages two, three, four, and five) at Big Oak Day Camp have a powerful urge and curiosity to learn about themselves and the world around them. The best opportunities for learning come from socialization, exploration and discovery all of which are highlights of our established summer camp program. This is why our “Little Buds” have their own unique and designated program to provide a developmentally & age appropriate program in a safe and nurturing environment. This well-balanced day camp program provides campers with the social, emotional and physical stimulation that is essential for this age group. Our mature and caring staff is a nurturing group made up of adults who work in the child care field, college students and some teenagers. In many ways, because of the unique developmental and social needs of our Little Buds age group, it is like a separate camp entity. However, our youngest (and cutest campers) are a big hit with the older campers when they are out and about campus making it a wonderful community of campers ages 2-14!
