*We welcome your rising Kindergartener!  However if your child is not 5 years old by the first day of camp, and/or has not yet had a full year of all-day preschool in a classroom setting, we ask you to wait a year until they are a rising 1st grader  to enroll them in Summer Camp Create.  We believe our littlest campers are most successful when then have already had experience with a full-day of intense activity in a group setting! We do not enroll children who have not turned 5 years old by the time they start camp, no exceptions.
