Hobart and William Smith Colleges are very excited for the return of our fun-filled academically based Kinder Camp. The camp is geared to campers entering grades 1 and 2. Campers will have the opportunity to choose different programs throughout the summer and will be provided with fun, hands-on experiences to expand and enhance the inner self.

2014 Themes

Artastic Art Week, July 7 – 11, 2014
If your child has a knack for the creative then this is the week for them. Campers will experiment with a variety of sculptural techniques including but not limited to paper mache, fort building, and ceramics. Our field trip for the week will be to Color Me Mine in Pittsford.

Drive Me Buggy Week, July 14 – 18, 2014
This week will be designated for insects and butterflies. We will learn all about the creepy crawlies. We will hatch our own Monarch butterflies and we will have a visit from an entomologist. We will finish out our week at the National Museum of Play in Rochester.

Super Soaking Water Week, July 21 – 25, 2014
This week will be designated for all types of water play. We will stay wet and wild for the whole week. Team building games and water sports will include water balloons, slip and slides, sprinklers, and water guns. Our week will culminate with a fun filled trip to Roseland Waterpark.
