Preschool Water Play Fridays

Preschool campers have the opportunity to enjoy water play most Fridays in summer. Students are expected to arrive in their swimsuits or clothes that can get wet. A towel and a complete, dry change of clothes must be provided on Water Play Fridays. Send the change of clothes in a zip-top bag. Please remember to label the clothes, the towel, and the swimsuit.

Water play may not happen because of inclement weather or special events. We will advise parents on Thursday if Water Play Day is cancelled for the following day.
