Preschool Summer Camp


Ijams is thrilled to announce the second year of our Nature Preschool Day Camp! Based on the overwhelming response to our proposed Nature Preschool, we have decided to offer summer programs, based on the Nature Preschool model.

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.

Preschool camp will be held Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

  • Week 1: June 3-7 (Little, Silly Scientists) FULL
  • Week 2: June 10-14 (Summer Camp “Rocks”) FULL
