First Grade Camp


We offer an introduction to the Harvey Day Camp experience for children entering first grade. Campers travel with their group and counselors throughout an exciting day filled with a selection of activities offered in our 2 through 8 programs. 

Classes in art, theater, sports, and science are tailored to the abilities of first graders; swimming and gymnastics will also be a part of their weekly schedule. The program’s features will give our youngest campers the opportunity to try a variety of our course offerings. 

A sample of class offerings can be found below.
