Junior Day Camp
Where it all begins!
Toilet-trained 3.5- to 5-year-olds
Full and Half-Day Options
"Our son has loved every minute of camp and we have been so impressed with the creations he brings home. Thanks for making it a great summer for him." - Junior Day Parent
Junior Day is the perfect place for young campers to meet new friends, make new learning discoveries, and have plenty of summer fun! Junior Day provides both full and half-day options each session.
Our Junior Day 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, cross-curricular instructional materials and age appropriate vocabulary. All classrooms will be cleaned regularly and closely monitored to maintain a safe and healthy environment.
This program is designed for our youngest campers, allowing additional time for transitions to build independence, while also providing the opportunity to expand their curiosity through periods of structured play. With an experienced professional teacher and select counselor(s) in each class, Junior Day groups maintain a low camper to teacher ratio, allowing a responsive, safe, and enriching environment where learning is happening all the time and campers are truly known!
A regular day includes stimulating and enriching experiences of outdoor and indoor play, circle time, and weekly themes in art, science, math, literacy, and music.
Note: Campers must be toilet-trained and must 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.
Please note that all eligible campers are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to participate in Summer at Norwood programming. Visit the Health and Safety Protocols page for more information.
