Preschool Summer Programs:
Caterpillar Camp Description: Digging in the dirt, exploring the natural world, and making art with reusable materials - we have something for everyone! Caterpillar Camp will be all outdoors, with occasional trips inside Avery House to say hello to the indoor animals. We will meet near the Avery Park Dinosaur Bones Monday-Thursday, and Fridays will be field trip days, often at Willamette Park. Some field trips will be bike-focused and children will bring their own bikes and helmets. We have several pedal-free strider bikes and helmets to borrow upon request. Let's explore!
Note: Campers must be three years old and potty trained by the time of session start.
You will be asked to select which weeks your preschooler will be able to attend. We will use the following topics as a starting point for each week and see where the children’s ideas and imaginations take us:
Session 1: June 19 - June 23 - Seeds and Sprouts
Session 2: June 26 - June 30 - Arboreal Explorers
Note: There is no camp during the 4th of July week
Session 3: July 10 - July 14 - Sky Gazers
Session 4: July 17- July 21 - Habitat Hoppers
