Adventurers Specialty Camps

Adventurers Specialty Camps are designed for 4- and 5-year-old campers going into PreK or Kindergarten with specific, passionate interests. A different specialty camp is offered each week, so your camper is sure to find one they absolutely love! After your camper's morning specialty program, they will join the Adventurers Day Camp in the afternoon.

*Please note that Specialty Camps include two recreational swim sessions and one day of water play per week, but do not include daily swim instruction.
