Junior Camp

Ages 3-6

Junior Camp consists of children entering nursery, pre-k, kindergarten and 1st grade after the summer. Our separate Junior Camp area and bunks are conveniently located near the junior pools, dining hall, bus pick up areas and health center. In addition to DAILY AMERICAN RED CROSS SWIM INSTRUCTION, campers participate in a variety of programs that are designed intentionally for young children and take place in scaled down activity areas built specifically for our smallest campers.

Our group leaders are experienced & nurturing early childhood teachers who supervise each group of campers at all times throughout the day. These group leaders are assisted by hand picked counselors who spend their days creating magical experiences and providing the care that young children need. It all begins the moment they step onto the bus each day, and continues until they are returned safely home to their family.

A trained bus counselor will be on the bus whenever campers are being transported. Shibley provides car seats as necessary and requires all buses to have seat belts and air conditioning. Campers can attend 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 weeks. A mini day program is available with transportation home at 2 pm for campers entering kindergarten and younger.

Throughout the year we hold events designed to make new campers comfortable at Shibley before they arrive for the first day of camp.
