We offer three sessions for preschool-aged children. All current and incoming CDS students are welcome, as well as students from the community who are at least four years old. Camp operates much like the typical preschool day at CDS: campers will enjoy morning circle, outdoor play, lunch, nap, snack, art, and visits to the farm and garden. Our camps are led by our experienced school-year preschool teachers who are dedicated to providing a fun and enriching experience for your child. Snacks are provided. For 2023, we will offer one 3-week session and two 2-week sessions of camp, each with a unique theme and curriculum designed by our preschool teachers.

Session 1: Culinary Science Camp (June 26-July 7)
Great bakers and chefs know that cooking is a science. We will learn to measure ingredients, discover where our food comes from, and make edible science experiments in this deliciously fun camp.

Session 2: Creative Arts Camp (July 10-28)
Get ready to express yourself! We will write and sing our own songs, act out our favorite stories, and explore a variety of art media in this creative camp.

Session 3: Nature Explorers Camp (July 31-August 11)
Join us in our very own Farm and Garden! We will spend our days bug hunting, gardening, and journaling our findings in this nature focused camp.
