Your peace of mind is a top priority, but what will your child's experience LOOK and FEEL like? Let’s dive into the MAGIC of Wondercamp so you know what to expect.

Personalized Experiences by Age

Perhaps you already have a little one in our care while their big brother or sister attends elementary school. When summer break starts, send them BOTH our way! Wondercamp is perfect for:

Toddlers (age 2)  | Preschoolers (ages 3 to 5) | School-Age Students (ages 5 to 12)

The program is up to 10 weeks long and will focus on a different theme each week.* We’re calling them Wonder Weeks! Preview the lineup here. All activities are open-ended and flexible to encourage children to embrace their natural sense of wonder. It’s about playing with friends and having fun!
