Camp Ganim

For Preschool Campers

Running, climbing, exploring, dancing, swimming, and lots of giggling—it’s all part of your child’s day when they’re at Camp Ganim. Designed specifically for children ages two through five, this fun day camp offers children a summer filled with fun interactions with nature, swimming, art, water play, music, gardening and more, with a group of great friends and caring counselors.
