LiTTLE Buds Day Camp

We believe our youngest Little Bud campers (ages two, three, four, and five)  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!
