At Spring Lake, our Mini Day and Full Day Junior Camp Programs are specifically designed to meet the needs of the young child as well as the first time camper. We understand the importance of our parents having a strong sense of trust in us, knowing that your son/daughter will be experiencing several firsts – from separation to riding a bus to learning to swim. Our Junior Camp staff members are trained to understand the need for being a hands-on counselor, offering warmth, support and encouragement to ensure a positive experience for our youngest campers. All enrolled Junior Campers must be completely toilet trained before their first day of camp.
All of our programs and facilities are age-appropriate. Many sports and arts areas are specifically designed for our Junior Campers – our Junior Pool which allows all of our little ones to comfortably stand; our junior tennis court with softer balls and perfectly sized rackets; a junior field house for floor hockey and other covered activities; our “Art Shop” pavilion; sports fields; a Music/Drama/Puppetry area; the Junior Camp “Kids in the Kitchen” cooking program; and even a complete Adventure Challenge, Rock Wall and Zip Line area. Every specialty area has trained specialists who understand the importance of working with our youngest campers, promoting risk-taking and self-confidence. Their instruction offers positive reinforcement while learning new skills, allowing our young campers to feel comfortable and have an enormous amount of fun!
