Little Explorer Camp

Garwood Family Center Y

Welcome to Camp

Welcome to Little Explorers! My name is Julie Staines and I will be the Little Explorers Unit Director for the 2019 summer camp season. I have been working at The Garwood Family Center Y for the past 7 years as the 4’s Preschool Teacher. I have many years of experience working with young children. Our staff is looking to guide your child through an exciting and safe camp experience filled with adventure, new friendships and fun.

What to Bring

We recommend that your child dress for a comfortable day at camp. Shorts, t-shirts, socks, and sneakers are best. NO open toed shoes, sandals or Crocs please. We also recommend that you send in one extra outfit in case of an accident. Please apply sunscreen before drop off each day.

Each Tuesday and Friday please send your child in a bathing suit under his or her clothes along with a towel with name clearly marked. (**changed to Monday July 2)

LUNCH OPTIONS: (11:45am-12:15pm)

If you would like your child to join us for lunch just add lunch to your child’s bag with snack. Be sure to send 2 beverages. If your child will not be eating lunch, we will have an alternate activity in one of our classroom centers.

Thursdays are Pizza Day! Price is $3.00/week.

Snack: Each day your child should bring a healthy snack and a refillable plastic water bottle or an insulated cup labeled with your child’s name. PLEASE REMEMBER WE ARE A PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE CAMP.
