My husband and I feel blessed to have found such a wonderful environment for our daughter to learn and grow up in while we had to work. LaGarderie is so much more than just a pre-school or daycare...LaGarderie has become our daughter's second home, a place she feels most comfortable and can be herself, and learn while she's there, too.
At La Garderie, Each program engages, educates, and entertains through hands-on activities provided in a safe, caring environment where campers feel free to explore.
Weekly themes chase away school-year doldrums by helping campers test the boundaries of their knowledge, discover fascinating facts and new areas of interest while realizing their learning potential and making life-long friends.
Our program is designed to provide a pure camping experience that is as memorable, diverse and
rewarding as we remember ours to be. Respect, fun, learning and friendship are the important
values we emphasize.
Our counselors and helpers have many years of experience working with children of all ages
and have been with our camp program for many years.
A typical day consists of carefully planned and age appropriate activities drawing from a wide
span of resources. Campers are grouped by age and will always have numerous options
to engage in structured activities, or pursue their individual interests.
We know you have many choices and we appreciate that you have chosen to spend your summer with La Garderie.
Summer Camp Overview:
Field Trips- Our field trips are purposefully selected to provide each camper with a complete Summer Camp experience. All field trips are well supervised by experienced and certified group leaders. Our group leader to child ratio is 1 to 10 during all field trips, which insures the safety and well-being of your camper. Two coolers will be provided on every field trip, one for fresh water and the other for lunches when necessary.
Swimming-Our campers will swim three (3) times a week. All camp counselors and certified lifeguards are in the pool with the children at all times. Our camp counselors are all CPR and First Aid Certified. Children are tested to determine swimming skill level.
Hands on Experiences & Arts and Crafts- The campers will have many hands on experiences that include building various practical and useful objects. Several art and craft activities are carefully selected to extend and connect our weekly themes. Campers will have the opportunity to recap their daily experiences through journal writing.
"I wanted to give you some feedback on the summer camp for this year in preparation for next year's summer camp. As a parent, I really love the idea of being able to select what weeks your child will attend based on the activities and only paying the activity fees for those weeks. It really helped me to plan my summer vacation for weeks that Brianna didn't necessarily want to attend. Paying for just the activities she participates in has really helped my budget.
As for Brianna's feedback, she absolutely loves the summer camp. Everyday she comes home so excited to tell me what she did and she told me just the other day that she is "having the best time at summer camp". When I told Brianna that she would be going back to summer camp at La Garderie next year she said "Really?! That is so awesome!"
I know you work hard to create a great summer camp so I want you to know how much Brianna and I appreciate the work you did to create this year's summer camp."
