North Salem Day Camp has something for everyone ages 4+. View our options below for each age group and transportation.
Summer 2021: Children entering Kindergarten in Fall 2022
This program runs 9am-3pm. In order to enroll in the program, campers must be entering their last year of preschool in the upcoming school year. Campers must be 4 years old by their session start and fully potty-trained.
The group schedule usually consists of 2-3 active activities a day (water play, nature, games, yoga, sports, dance, music) plus 2-3 quiet activities (playtime, story time, arts and crafts, snack time, etc.) We also have many special programs that visit camp- pony rides, petting zoo, nature programs, music programs, a DJ, etc. See all activities here.
The Pre-K cabin is fully stocked with activities - it has toys of all kinds, books, crafts, outdoor play equipment and more! Campers eat lunch in their cabin, separate from the older campers.
Our PreK group does not swim in the big pool daily. They have a kiddie pool and water toys/sprinklers at their cabin. Occasionally, the Pre-K campers take a "field trip" to visit and try out the big pool so they can see where they will be swimming next summer.
