2019 Camps

Fireflies (Rising Pre-Kindergarten 3 & 4)

The Fireflies program is designed to provide rising Pre-Kindergarten campers, ages 3 and 4, with a half or full day of activities. With an emphasis on social and emotional growth, Fireflies are encouraged to explore at camp in a safe and nurturing environment.
 
Fireflies explore weekly themes (see themes in tabs below) through games, music, stories, dramatic play, crafts and activities. Time will also be spent in outdoor play, the pool and enjoying the Beauvoir Outdoors. Fireflies will build confidence and strengthen skills while interacting with this one-of-a-kind educational play space.

Highlights for Summer 2020!
  • Half-day Fireflies have lunch at camp prior to their noon pick-up time.
  • Both half and full-day Fireflies will have 2-3 swim lessons per week!
Swim lessons will take place with qualified instructors in the shallow end of the main Beauvoir Pool. In addition to the lessons, all Fireflies will have a daily splash time at Beauvoir’s toddler pool. Additional swim instruction options are available.  To view all of Beauvoir Summer's swim options and pricing, click here.
All Fireflies must be three years old by May 1, 2020, and must be fully toilet trained. No exceptions will be made. Lunch is served for both the half-day and full-day programs.
 
Hours: 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (half-day) or 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.  (full-day)
