Busy Beaver Camp

Half-Day Camp for Preschoolers

Treat your child to a week of good old-fashioned camping fun…working and playing with friends, arts and crafts, songs and games and more! Busy Beaver is a half-day “camping” experience designed just for preschoolers. Each session’s activities are planned around a weekly theme chosen to appeal to the interests and curiosities of this age group. Picnics, swimming and weekly field trips add to the excitement! Busy Beaver Camp is located at the Fercho YMCA in the KinderKamp Preschool rooms. Swimming activities will be held in the YMCA’s Zero-Depth Pool two days during the week. Island Park is used for all outdoor activities and picnics.
