Each session of the Children's Program is a 3-week program during which campers attend classes daily in art, music, dance and swimming. Eighty children are enrolled in this program (4 groups of 20). Applicants are placed into one of four groups based on age and grade in school. Each group is accompanied by two counselors who guide campers to and from their morning classes. Each class is taught by a qualified instructor and lasts approximately 45 minutes. The morning program runs from 8:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., with drop-off beginning at 8:30 a.m. Early drop off and pick up programs are available for an additional fee.
