Sparrow Program (PreK-K)
Our Sparrow program is designed to give young children an introduction to camp. Sparrow campers build confidence by spending the day away from home, making new friends, playing outdoors and with their imaginations, and trying out camp activities.
Like all age groups, Sparrow program campers will enjoy
- Six rotating activity periods each day, plus lunch, swim, and juice bars!
- A unique group theme created by their group, leading to special adventures.
- Activities like archery, arts & crafts, field sports and games, gaga, hiking, initiatives (team building activities), nature & ecology, playground sports & games (basketball, handball, tetherball, volleyball, etc.), performing arts, and swim!
- Plus the age-specific activities listed below.
- Practicing the Kinneret Roots: Independence, Teamwork, Creativity, Friendship, and Community.
