Pre-K Summer Camps

2017 Pre-K Summer Camps

Pre-K summer camp is designed for 3.5-5.5 year old children to explore, learn, create and have fun while continuing growth in all skill areas needed upon entering Kindergarten. Each week, children will visit the Wild Florida Trail, farm animals, sinkhole, nature trail, and play ground, as well as attend at least 2 animal encounters.  Each day children will have a balance between outdoor exploration and time to hydrate and cool off indoors on those hot summer days.


Online registration will close at 12 p.m. on the Friday prior to each camp. You may download, and bring in a registration form on the day of camp, but please know this does not guarantee you a spot. Registration is on a first come, first served basis. Early registration is recommended.

A $25 administrative fee for program date/time change is applied to any change made in addition to the allowed change, or one that is less than 2 weeks prior.


Pre-K campers must bring their own lunches and 2 snacks daily.
