Sprouts & Seedlings, Ages 4-7

Tanglewood’s Sprouts and Seedlings day camps are unique experiences designed especially for 4 to 7-year-olds with focus on nature connection and social-skill building. Each morning begins with the discovery of a theme that will tug at imaginations as the natural world is explored. Throughout the day, Sprouts and Seedlings connect with each other and their environment through games, exploration, songs, and art. And what hot summer’s day would be complete without a refreshing water game?

Sprouts and Seedling sessions run for five days, Monday to Friday, during the hours of 8:30 AM and 3:30 PM (3:00 PM on Friday).

* Week 4 (July 19-22) ends on Thursday.*

Campers are grouped by age (Sprouts: 4-5 and Seedlings: 6-7) with specifically tailored activities and games to meet the needs of all. Small groups are led by two to three leaders with experience working with younger age groups in experiential outdoor education. Sprouts and Seedlings will have the opportunity to make discoveries and learn about making choices. Cozy program buildings create safe spaces for relaxing, sharing and learning.

At no additional charge, parents may drop off campers as early as 7:30 Tuesday – Friday and pick up campers as late as 5:00 PM Monday – Thursday. During these extended hours, campers can play field games, color, draw, play with the goats or read books in the shade with their new camp friends; afternoon snack is provided.

Saplings, Ages 8-11

We think summer camp is the best thing ever, and the Saplings program is designed to give campers a first-hand look into the world of residential camp — without having to spend the night! Campers participate in a Monday-Friday program from 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM (3:00 PM on Friday).

Lunch & a snack are provided during weeks 1-8*. Campers will have their meals with our residential campers and are assigned bunks in our cabins. One overnight, Thursday (Wednesday week 4) for our final campfire, is included during weeks 1-8*.

 * Week 4 (July 19-22) ends on Thursday.

*Week 9 does not include an overnight option or meals as we will not have a residential program. Saplings will have to bring their lunch & snack.

Campers are grouped together and participate in weekly themed morning programs tailored to give Saplings a taste of the full depth of what camp at Tanglewood is all about. Each week will include a special adventure or project to gain new skills through and have fun with.

During the week, daily afternoon electives offer many more choices of educational and recreational fun. Campers can enjoy hikes, pond study, court and field sports, swim instruction, creative art projects, and music! There is also plenty of time for swimming, playing field games, or just relaxing with new friends.
