The Tot Camp program provides children who have not yet been to kindergarten a chance to engage in activities and build social skills throughout the summer. Tot Camp is designed to provide your little one with physical, mental, and social activities. Tots will get creative with themed arts and crafts, free choice indoor and outdoor play, music and stories. Children will have a blast going on nature walks, playing games outside, and being active with friends on our age-appropriate playground. We encourage children to bring their own water bottles, while the Park District will provide a snack each day. Children must be potty-trained. Participants should bring a swimsuit and towel on Tuesdays for water activities, which include sprinklers, water tables, sponges and more.
