Preschool Camp is open to anyone so please invite your neighbors and friends!

Visit the Weekday Preschool website for camp details, policies and registration forms. The cost is $115 per week. Sibling discounts are available.

The deadline for registering for camp is April 21, but it is possible that we will be full prior to that date.

Recyclable Items Needed for Camp Crafts

For crafts at camp this summer, we are in need of the following items:


paper towel rolls and toilet paper rolls (just the empty roll-- not the paper)

empty water bottles -- all sizes


If you are able to donate any of these items, it would be greatly appreciated! You can drop off these items at the preschool desk in the galleria. Thank you so much!
