SUMMIT, NJ - The “Guppies” program at The Connection for Women and Families is the perfect first-time camp experience, created just for three year-olds! Carefully designed to provide a safe and nurturing environment, Guppies are able to participate in all of the traditional SummerFun experiences, in smaller groups with modified, age-appropriate activities.

With their home-base in The Connection’s state-of-the-art preschool classroom, the Guppies are led by Christina Bariese, a certified teacher and Director of The Connection Preschool.  Christina is joined by an experienced staff of counselors who have a special interest in working with The Connection’s littlest campers.

The SummerFun camp (9:00-1:00pm) offers daily activities such as swim lessons, yoga, dance, gymnastics, sports, arts and crafts. Campers are grouped by age and rotate through the 30,000 sq ft building, outdoor recreation and playground facilities, plus a state of the art gymnastics gym for a well-rounded summer camp experience.  Staff will lead the Guppies through all SummerFun Camp rotations, plus special story-time and playtime in the preschool classroom.
