Cub Camp

Park Tudor's Fun & Imaginative Summer Camps Just for 3 & 4 Year Olds!

Add on the afternoon camp for a full-day experience (9 a.m. - 4 p.m.) for only $125 more!

Created especially for our preschool campers, Cub Camps are designed to engage curious minds through art, scientific exploration and guided discovery. Campers will use a variety of materials as thinking tools to tell their stories, investigate, experiment and represent their thoughts and ideas. Summer provides the perfect backdrop for open-ended, playful exploration of the physical world.

Weekly themes are open-ended by design, allowing space for preschoolers to pursue their individual passions and interests within the classroom. Our youngest campers will be invited to imagine and play in a relaxed environment moving at the pace of summer.

*All campers must be 3 by the start of the program and must be potty trained.

Mornings:
9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
$150 per week (The week of July 4th is pro-rated for the short week/$130)

Afternoons:
12:00-4:00 p.m.
$125 per week (The week of July 4th is pro-rated for the short week/$100)

Our afternoon offering for Pre-K and Kindergarten students is an exciting way to continue to acclimate them to classroom and social settings through a continuation of morning activities. In a relaxed, summer atmosphere, your learner will enjoy fun in the sun with friends, fine motor skill development using arts and crafts, and opportunities for role play and imagination with their new friends.

Lunch: Cubs staying for a full day will need to pack a nut-free lunch Monday-Thursday. On Friday we will celebrate our week together with a cookout on Lauth Field. For students who will need rest time, we take our nap time at 1:00 and allow them to sleep at the duration that they require.

What shapes are made when lines intersect?
