Ages 3–4

Early Childhood at LJCDS is made up of three, two-week sessions running from 8 a.m.–3 p.m, though children are welcome to sign-up for half-day camps if preferred. Our early childhood program is committed to providing each child with developmentally appropriate activities to encourage social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth. Our summer program is built and run by professional educators with many years of teaching experience. 

Each session is designed around a fun and enriching theme that will inspire play and learning through a variety of activities including crafts, literature, science and indoor/outdoor play. Students who stay for a full day will have quiet time after lunch, followed by an afternoon snack and fun afternoon activities! 

Children must meet the following requirements:
  • Children who are potty-trained and out of diapers and pull-ups
  • Children who are age 3 (by August 31) may enroll in the Tiny Torreys Summer Camps
  • Children who are age 4 (by August 31) may enroll in the Junior Kindergarten Summer Camps

Camp Sessions

Session 1: Nature Investigators: June 8–19
Session 2: Design Makers: June 22–July 2 (There will be no camp on July 3)
Session 3: Authors and Illustrators: July 7–17

If a student is unable to attend both weeks of the two-week sessions, please contact the Summer Programs office at 858-453-3400 ext.333 to see if there is availability for a one-week registration.
