AJCC Preschool Summer Camp is a summer day camp for preschool children - ages 2 to 5. It is an extension of our excellent DHS Licensed Three Star Rated Program that provides excellent care and instruction for children from August to May each year. Campers spend much of their time outdoors exploring nature, swimming and playing on the playground. Fun and learning continues with a healthy dose of sunshine and fresh air.
Weekly sign ups allow families the flexibility to choose “time off” for summer vacations.
Please remember to sign your child up for at least two consecutive one-week sessions.
We also offer three, four or five day options in all classrooms.
Counselors are selected by qualifications and experience. Staff members are screened through personal interviews, references and background checks to ensure their suitability to work in the preschool camp. All our staff are experienced child care providers who meet all requirements set forth by the Department of Human Services.They complete an intensive orientation and training process which includes water safety training as well as instruction on developmentally appropriate child/staff interactions by a social service professional. All staff are Red Cross certified in CPR and First Aid. Land life guards have Red Cross Lifeguard certification.
