You're never too young for summer camp. At Amity Acres Day Camp, we invite our young 3-4 year-old campers, girls and boys with sisters in camp, to attend camp and join in on the fun. We know children benefit immensely from their time outdoors: they experience personal growth and empowerment, try new things, overcome fears, and learn teamwork and leadership skills.
The open space of the outdoors, combined with the calming effects of nature and the opportunities for new experiences and growth, constitute an ideal setting in which children can explore, observe, learn, and give back to their peers and their communities. The inherent novelty and challenge of many outdoor activities is also appealing and can help them develop mastery, agency, and personal identity.
Sign your child up for their first (or second) camp experience today. Give them the opportunity to explore three special types of fun that can only be found at camp.
- meaningful learning (involving challenge, mastery, and accomplishment)
- socialization (making friends and strengthening friendships)
- fun with nature (observing and interacting with the natural world)
