Stepping Stones – More Than Just Fun & Games!
As we approach spring, our office at HCDC is abuzz with phone conversations with parents of campers and prospective campers in which a common theme is how their young children entering camp for the first time can be best prepared for their camp experience. While we find that a child who has had some activity independent from his/her parents will have an easier time assimilating into the new camp environment, it is not essential and our Stepping Stones Program easily accommodates children with varying levels of independent experience.
Our Stepping Stones Program is designed to create a day filled with exciting and enjoyable activities for our 2.5, 3 and 4 year olds. However, it is also formulated to prepare your child for his/her transition to a school environment.
As a new Stepping Stones camper, your child will be exposed to a stimulating program that will include daily activities designed to develop, encourage and enhance his or her social, physical and cognitive skills. Many of the activities that our campers will experience and the skills that they will develop in our Stepping Stones Program will help to provide the foundation for their success in that all important first year of school.
Working with our nursery and preschool campers provides us with the exciting and satisfying opportunity to be part of your child’s essential growth process. We would love for you to learn more about the HCDC Stepping Stones Program and we encourage you to visit our Stepping Stones page.
Remember, summer is just around the corner!
