The Junior Campers Program, for campers ages 6 and 7, in rising grades 1 and 2*, is part of our larger Creative Kids Program and housed in Holton's Lower School. This traditional day camp for boys and girls offers a wide variety of fun and engaging activities. Each Junior Campers group has 15 campers and 3 counselors in a stimulating classroom environment. These mixed-age groups of rising 1st and 2nd grade campers are led by experienced early childhood professionals, college students, and junior counselors,
The pre-set schedule of daily activities includes Arts & Crafts, Cooking, Science Creative Movement, Music, Sports & Games, and a Home-Room activity that varies from day to day. Two options are offered: one includes daily Swim Instruction, one does not include Swim instruction.
