New this summer, The Connection is offering a full day option for their youngest campers. Parents are now able to choose from a half day (9am-1pm) or a full day (9am-4:30pm)”Guppies” program. This is a great opportunity for first time campers to get the full day camp experience. Guppies have a room of their own with activities such as art, morning swim lessons, gym and STEAM specially designed for their age. They will be able to try new things and stimulate their curious minds. Campers will begin learning other important skills such as:
Socialization- Whether your child is currently attending a preschool daily or just few times a week, the Guppies program is a great place to experience the fun of summer camp in a structured setting. Children will be involved in many activities with their peers, creating friendships and fostering social-emotional growth. Each day, children will be learning new ways to interact with peers through sharing, playing, listening to stories, and crafts!
Fine and Gross Motor Development- Children attending the Guppies program will be building on their fine and gross motor skills. Throughout our day, the Guppies counselors will be incorporating activities to support the development of muscles to include throwing a ball, holding a crayon, jumping, skipping and many more.
Creating Connections- At The Connection, children will learn to make connections with peers and adults in a new and exciting environment. The Guppies will interact with peers, other aged campers, counselors, and enrichment activity staff. Summer camp is a wonderful place to build lasting friendships and try new things. For some, this may be their first group experience, which can be scary! The Connection’s caring and nurturing staff will help each child grow in comfort and confidence as the days progress.
The Connection has carefully crafted the Guppies program to be the perfect first time camp experience for 3-year-olds. Their Directors ensure a safe, engaging, and memorable experience. The Guppies program is designed to include all of the wonderful activities of SummerFun, but with a smaller group size and modified, age-appropriate activities.
