Little Sprout Camp at the Treehouse at WLC

Our Little Sprout Camp is our toddler-preschool summer program. It is an enrichment program where children can enjoy the outdoors and nature in our playground, experiment with water and ice in our outdoor sensory tables and enjoy hands-on activities, crafts, music, and stories in our air-conditioned classrooms. All the activities for this camp are carefully planned with the “first time” camper in mind. Each week we will explore a theme, with a fun & exciting theme launch “Special Event” on Mondays! Is your child not signed up to attend on Monday? No Problem! Any child enrolled in other days for that week may attend the theme-launch “Special Event” on Monday with a parent or caregiver.

Little Sprout Camp runs 9:00 AM-12:00 PM during all summer sessions. You can choose an enrollment option that fits your child’s and family’s needs: 2 days, 3 days or 5 days per week. It is also a great way to introduce your child to our school before the fall!
