Saplings Day Camp for Ages 5-8


Hosmer Point offers eight Monday-Friday sessions of adventure day camp for 5 to 8-year-olds at the Hosmer Point campus,  starting June 18th and running through August 10th. Sign up for a week, or for the entire summer.  Your camper will come home full of stories about looking for frogs at the bay, nourished by eating locally grown food from the camp gardens, with lots of great art projects to share with you, and so much more! Each day at Hosmer Point includes time at the lake for swimming lessons with our qualified instructors, as well as time for waterfront play.  Lunch and two healthy snacks are included (we provide vegetarian, gluten free, and lactose free options).

Saplings ages 5 & 6 and ages 7 & 8 are divided into two groups of 6-8 campers each.  With at least two counselors for each group, we can make sure each camper is having a great camp experience.

Each day of Saplings offers activities on a different theme, including:

  • Wacky Water
  • Farm & Garden
  • Creative Arts
  • Build It!
  • Nature Explorers

Each session will offer new activities so campers attending for more than one week will never get bored!

Much of our day is spent at the waterfront, where Saplings have daily swim lessons and lots of time to play on our sandy beach and in the water.  In the morning, there's a block of time where we can work on projects or go on adventures - this is where the daily themes come in.  Our general philosophy is to value flexibility and camper-directed activity choices over set schedules. The priority is a positive and relaxed environment which encourages outdoor, active play.
