The All-New Junior Camp Program!

The newly reimagined Junior Camp program puts the developmental needs of our youngest campers first and foremost, and allows our 3 and 4 year olds to enjoy the Sewataro experience at their pace. Junior Camp now includes two offerings: Sprouts, our traditional half-day program for 3 and 4 year olds; and Saplings, a full-day program for 4s only. With careful attention to their programming, slower transitions, built-in free play time, and free swim daily, we have created an ideal place for our youngest campers to grow and thrive socially and physically, under the care of dedicated preschool professionals who adore working with this age group!

Junior Camp Head: Kristen Drummey (please visit our Meet the Staff page to find out more about Kristen).


Junior Camp and Fox campers have their own mini basketball court and shady playing fields (“The Meadows”), that are closer to the Junior Camp area, so young legs don’t have to walk so far, and an Adventure Kingdom complete with a trolley to give them a taste of the thrill that awaits when they are old enough to try the Zip-line. In addition, these campers have their own Magic Treehouse and, of course, the ever popular Sewataro Sand Kingdom and Fox Village.


A weekly, half day program for children ages 3 - 4
(8:30 – 12:45)

The Sprouts program was created in 2010 with the intention of creating a preschool camp environment offering both Sewataro’s mission and superb facilities to these youngest of campers.

The Sprouts program refines the larger mission of Sewataro to meet the developmental needs of preschoolers. Children are engaged in activities developed to foster collaboration, creativity, team-building, and observation of the natural world around them. Programming is thoughtfully planned with the goal of providing a bridge for preschoolers into their first camp experience.
