Preschool Camp

Your child's first years at camp are so important.  The Darien YMCA Preschool Camp provides a safe, nurturing and age appropriate environment while they play, learn, and grow.


Holly Hoppers

Ages 3 & 4 (not for children who will be entering kindergarten)

For 1st time campers, this is a great program for your child. Campers will explore at their own pace while building coordination and concentration skills in a safe and nurturing environment. They will participate in music, creative movement, swimming, games, cooking, arts & crafts and special events. Parents can choose from:

*3 day (Tues, Wed & Thurs) morning,  8:30 AM – 11:30 AM

*3 day (Tues, Wed & Thurs) afternoon, 12:30 PM - 3:30 PM

*5 day (Mon - Fri) morning, 8:30 AM – 11:30 AM

Children must be fully potty trained and turn 3 years by the start of the session they are registered for.

Children may sign up for Lunch Bunch (see below).


Summer Fun Club

Ages 4 & 5

Campers who have not yet completed kindergarten will enjoy this camp. Activities such as swimming, creative movement, crafts, cooking, canoeing/sailing, music, sports and free play give campers the opportunity to build self-esteem through creativity and exploration.
