2014 WCNS Summer Camp

Summer Camp programs for 2.5 - 5 year olds!

Camp Dates: June 9th - July 19th



WCNS offers several options for summer campers.  Our unique camps focus on learning by discovery and exploration, using both our air-conditioned indoor classrooms and state-of-the-art outdoor learning centers.  Children are instructed by highly qualified early childhood teachers who nurture and challenge children in small groups.  Each camp fosters imagination, creativity, socialization, and gross motor development through enriching and exciting activities and play.  Campers will enjoy:

  • A healthy organic snack served each day.
  • Our great outdoor space:  campers are invited to bring swimsuits and cool off by playing in the sprinklers and water tables.
  • Many special guests share artistic performances, story-telling, music and structured experiences with nature.
