During the summer, Junior Day Camp is the place to be! Summer at Norwood is pleased to offer this premier program, for three and a half, four, and five year olds who have not yet attended kindergarten. Junior Day Camp is made up of small groups of no more than 15 campers, with one experienced professional and two select counselors for each group - a 5:1 ratio!
A regular day includes rotation through subject-based activities, snack, and outside playtime with frequent water play (weather permitting). Half-day campers go home prior to lunch. Full-day campers stay for lunch, rest time, and larger group activities.
Note: Campers must be toilet-trained and be three and a half years old on or before the start of the session.
Junior Pre-K Program – (3 ½ and 4 years old)
The daily schedule of the specifically designed Junior Pre-K Program gives our youngest campers time to immerse themselves in the magic of learning through play, allowing them to make new friends, engage with their teachers, and explore their world. Educators across the globe agree that the importance of play in the lives of children cannot be overstated. The program also includes age-appropriate time periods for campers to explore multiple subject areas in a structured daily activity rotation. Our teachers and counselors provide a 5:1 ratio for all Junior Pre-K classes, creating a safe, fun, and enriching experience for our young learners.
Junior K Program – (5 years old)
Our Junior K Program provides campers with an exciting and enriching experience that they can take with them as they prepare for their big year in Kindergarten! Teachers and counselors provide a 5:1 ratio for all Junior K classes and allow for a real focus on social-emotional growth and learning. Junior K campers will rotate within their own cluster of small groups, participating in a wide variety of hands-on activities throughout the session that explore different concepts and themes including, science, math, music, sports, language exploration, and reading! As always, play is key for young campers, and the Junior K Program is filled with enriching activities that help campers prepare for Kindergarten while providing a summer experience full of wonder and fun!

What is movement without music? Fun children's songs and music will be played to aid us in our movement.

Campers will participate in games that will help them build endurance and coordination while reinforcing important skills such as following directions. Additionally, campers will have a chance to use a variety of athletic equipment.

They will be introduced to basic Spanish by singing songs, making projects, and playing games. In addition to learning about culture and language, campers will have an introduction to world geography.
Reading Fun – Junior Day campers will read stories appropriate to their age level. Books will be selected according to the weekly theme. Campers will work on projects and activities related to the story to help enforce the theme and encourage them to be excited about reading and learning new words.
