YMCA of Greater Bergen County

Terrapin Day Camp - Preschool Camp

NEW Camp for Pre-School, Ages 4-5

Grow. Learn. Belong.

Camp at the YMCA of Greater Bergen County is a great place for summer fun and adventure! 

Our pre-school camp program provides a variety of activities to expand children’s horizons by providing developmentally appropriate, creative, and fun experiences.  Activity-filled days include music, sports & games, arts & crafts, science & nature, gymnastics, swimming, and more.  We recognize the importance of free play to develop socialization and group skills, as well, as making friends.  In addition, camp sets a foundation by establishing routine and teaching children to follow a schedule.  With counselor-to-camper ratio at 1:5, the environment is perfect for personal interaction and assistance to each camper. All counselors are chosen to work with this age group for their exceptional patience and caring nature.

Camp Terrapin is a great place for your child to discover his or her potential in a safe, nurturing environment.  Our campers’ days are filled with playing, socializing, exploring, and experimenting in the company of friends and counselors.

Camp Terrapin will utilize YMCA facilities including gymnasium, arts & crafts room, and swimming pool with campers receiving a swim lesson twice per week by certified swim instructors.

Camp is in session July 2-August 24 with weekly sign-up; $275 per week. (No camp July 4, 2018.) Before and After Camp Care Available
