Junior Day Camp


Where it all begins! 

Toilet-trained 3.5 to 5 year olds

Our Junior Pre-K and Junior-K campers gain self-confidence and foundational skills for lifelong learning through teacher-guided investigations and independent exploration.  Campers collaborate and play together, engaging in hands-on learning with diverse instructional materials and child-friendly vocabulary.


Junior Pre-K (3.5 -4 year olds) campers enjoy the day with additional time for transitions to build independence.  Junior K (5 year olds) campers can delve deeper and expand their curiosity through longer periods of structured play.  With an experienced professional teacher and two select counselors per class, Junior Day groups maintain a low camper to teacher ratio, allowing a truly responsive, safe, and enriching environment where learning is happening all the time!

A regular day includes a familiar rhythm of indoor play, circle time, snacks, and outdoor activities.  Campers will explore themes in art, science, math, literacy, and music.  Junior Day provides both full and half day options for campers.


Note: Campers must be toilet-trained and be three and a half years old on or before the start of the session.  Click HERE to see Summer at Norwood's definition and policy on toilet-trained campers.
