Discoverers: Age 3–Entering Pre-K
Our Discoverers program nurtures the creativity and excitement of childhood. Our counselor-led activities promote joy, friendship, imagination and creative thinking. Children explore a variety of interests through hands-on activities and games as well as swim lessons. Weekly themes are woven through activities and projects throughout the week, giving a unique twist to each session.
