Preschool Summer Camp


Ijams is thrilled to announce the third year of our Nature Preschool Day Camp! 

The Nature Preschool Day Camp will focus on child-led, age-appropriate, and experiential learning for children ages 3-5. Most of the day will be spend outdoors, exploring nature and making a strong connection with the environment. Children will learn through play, discovery, and inquiry. Not only will children develop a solid foundation for lifelong learning, but they will also cultivate a love of nature that is the basis for a conservation ethic later in life.
