preschool camp ages 2 1/2 to 6 years

We are excited to welcome you to our Summer Explorations Camp where your child will explore and discover new and exciting destinations each week. Summer is the perfect time to stretch a child's imagination and intellect. Summer Explorations, the Anne & Jim Kenan Preschool's summer camp for boys and girls ages 2-1/2 to 6 years, provides a blend of fun and discovery with activities designed to encourage children to experience new information about the world in which they live and build their creativity. Preschool classrooms will be transformed into different exotic locations each week and your child will experience fun activities allowing them to discover and explore the magic of each destination.

Experienced staff from the Anne & Jim Kenan Preschool, assisted by college and high school counselors, will transport children throughout the weekly destinations and guide campers to explore each area through creative play, drama, art, music, cooking, story time and outdoor play. We invite your children to pack their bags and travel across globe with us this summer! Please note all camp destinations exist in the imagination and take place in the preschool classrooms on campus.
