In our Fledglings and Chickadees program, campers will make new friends, explore the Sanctuary’s trails, beach and tide pools, meet education animals, listen to stories, play with puppets, create crafts, and sing songs. Our half day Fledglings program is a perfect introduction to camp for your young learner. Fledglings will now include a supervised lunch time and a few fun afternoon activities. Our Chickadees camp program is now extended until 3:00 p.m. With smaller camp groups and built in quiet time, this program is a great introduction to a whole day camp program for your young child. Both programs are limited to 12 campers per session. In order to ensure our campers have the best possible experience, all campers must be able communicate verbally and be fully toilet trained.
