The Laurus Juniors Program caters to preschool children (ages 3-4) and provides them with the opportunity to advance their cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development.
Throughout the summer, our Junior campers will be exposed to a variety of experiences, including story time, circle time, sensory activities, physical activities, and little life lessons that will leave them better equipped to tackle day-to-day challenges. In addition, our Juniors will have the chance to experience a new Specific Training Area (STA) offered on site every single day throughout the week. From cooking to science, art to soccer and everything in between, your child will get the perfect introduction to a fun filled summer of discovery! We believe that it is through these various channels of exploration that our Juniors will best be able to learn about themselves and the world surrounding them.
Our average 3:1 camper to counselor ratio allows our team to tailor the Juniors Program to every preschooler’s needs, creating a personal and hands-on experience. From optional nap times to assistance with sunscreen application and tweaking of activities, we promise to do our best to meet all of your requests!

Juniors will use this 45 minute time block to enjoy a variety of outdoor water games. Counselors are mindful of the weather, specifically cooler August mornings. On these days, it may be necessary to swap Water Games programming with Creative, Motor or Skill Skills.
