Benefits of Whippersnapper’s Day Camp

  • We have both an air conditioned indoor play area as well as an outdoor area with a water sprinkler.  If it’s too hot out, or bad weather, we will stay inside!
  • We do not require a minimum enrollment.  Sign up for only the days and times that you need. If you don’t need full weeks, that is fine with us!
  • We employ mature, reliable college graduate/adult staff as our camp directors that are certified in CPR, First Aid and Medication Administration as well as licensed camp directors with the State of Connecticut.  Two camp directors are staffed here at all times whenever any child is here with additional counselors as needed.  All staff also have background checks completed.
  • We have a high staff to camper ratio, well above the state requirements, which allows us to provide superior care and attention to all of our campers.  This also allows us assist with our youngest campers who may need some extra attention during what may be their very first camp experience.
  • We are a Connecticut Licensed Camp.  All camps in the state of Connecticut must have a Day Camp license in order to run programs.  We are well versed in the requirements of the Connecticut Youth Camp license requirements and have ours proudly displayed in our lobby.
  • We have fun themes planned for the summer and incorporate crafts and visits from professionals that correlate to our weekly theme.
