JMU4KIDS DAY CAMP @ SAINT GREGORY'S
Ages4-5 years 6-8 years 9-12 years
Campers are grouped according to age and each group follows a daily schedule. There is an adult head counselor with at least one assistant for each group of 12-14 campers. Additionally, each activity usually includes an adult teacher.
Other than the short (10 minute) bus ride to the pool for the daily swim we do not take any other field trips. The Day Camp at Saint Gregory's has its own outdoor, heated pool on site.
