Fireflies (Ages 3-4)Come Light Up Camp & Create Lifelong Memories

You're never too young for summer camp. At Sacajawea Day Camp, we invite our young 3-4 year-old campers, girls and boys with sisters in camp, to attend camp and join in on the fun. We know children benefit immensely from their time outdoors: they experience personal growth and empowerment, try new things, overcome fears, and learn teamwork and leadership skills.

The open space of the outdoors, combined with the calming effects of nature and the opportunities for new experiences and growth, constitute an ideal setting in which children can explore, observe, learn, and give back to their peers and their communities. The inherent novelty and challenge of many outdoor activities is also appealing and can help them develop mastery, agency, and personal identity.

Sign your child up for their first (or second) camp experience today. Give them the opportunity to explore three special types of fun that can only be found at camp.

  • meaningful learning (involving challenge, mastery, and accomplishment)
  • socialization (making friends and strengthening friendships)
  • fun with nature (observing and interacting with the natural world)

Why Sacajawea?

Sacajawea Day Camp is a lot of fun. But, it's fun with a purpose. Through camp, children are exposed to ideas and information that will make a difference for the rest of their lives. It also teaches three basic, yet important skills.

Courage

Camp is a community unlike any other. Together, in what begins as an unfamiliar setting, campers find the courage within themselves to meet new people, make new friends, and bond together. Thereafter, camp becomes both familiar and comfortable; it's now the place they want to be.  As they make choices and direct projects, girls learn to work well with others, become self-reliant, and develop their leadership skills.

Confidence

For many campers, Sacajawea Day Camp is their first experience away from parents, away from home, and away from familiarity - even if only for a day. Camp becomes their safe haven, where they unleash their unlimited potential, and where they develop the confidence they need to face any challenge.

Character

Camp is the ultimate character-building experience. It is a safe place to learn individual responsibility, to become empowered and to take care of oneself. Though camp counselors certainly provide structure, guidance, and supervision, a camper is responsible for her actions throughout the day, while assuming responsibility for personal belongings and making budget conscious decisions at the camp store, often for the very first time.
