Little Stars Camp

Little Stars Camps

Little Stars Full Day

Little Stars Half Day Camp is for campers 3-4 years old, and Full Day Camp is for campers 4-5 years old. Campers must be four at the program's start to attend Full Day Camp. These campers are ready to join Camp CaHiTo but still need a rest/nap period and more individualized care.

Children must be at least three years of age to attend a Little Stars Camp, and potty-trained. If your child is 5, our suggestion is as follows: if you have a five-year-old entering Kindergarten, Little Stars Camp is designed for your child. If you have a five-year-old entering 1st grade who has completed Kindergarten, he/she is eligible for our Traditional Day Camp program. If you have questions about your five-year-old’s appropriateness for either of our camps, please contact us.

Program

A typical day begins with all Campers meeting at their assigned Camp Sites.

All Campers will be in small groups of children of the same age, with whom they will spend the entire session. Camp CaHiTo is a “group-centered” camp – meaning that our campers have the same counselor and peer group for the duration of the camp session. Group-centered camping gives children the best opportunity to experience the powerful feeling of belonging, to make and keep new friends, and to connect with their counselors.

We then begin daily camp activities, all of which are age-appropriate games, hikes, and crafts determined by their counselors to fit the theme of the week and what the group likes to do. Activities include Archery, Hiking, Art and Crafts, Fort Building, Traditional Organized Games, and Outdoor Education.

We invite you and your child to come and check us out at one of our Upcoming Meet & Greets.
