K-1 Programs

Like the older age groups, K-1 campers choose a morning and an afternoon camp program. However, the difference is that K-1 campers have their own K-1 Camp classroom, and a designated camp director, Maggie Ruff (bio).

Maggie will oversee morning drop off and afternoon pick up of all K-1 campers in the K-1 classroom, and every day the group will have a morning meeting and will eat lunch together in their room.

K-1 camp is a great transition for the age group, getting them included in the larger camp community while still giving them the support and space they need!
