We have full and half day (for our nursery age children) programs with many daily activities and special events. The East Woods Camp creates an atmosphere of lively, yet relaxed summer fun.
The summer program is divided into seven divisions:
The camp staff consists of dedicated East Woods and certified teachers supplemented by American Red Cross swimming instructors, and additional counselor staff.
Your little one will create art projects in the Pre-Nursery classroom, go to the library, music class, cooking, play on the playground, dance, sports/movement and run in the sprinklers. Snacks and water will be provided. Potty training is not required!
The children have a safe and nurturing environment and is overseen by adult staff.
Available 2, 3, 4 or 5 days a week.
Campers must be two years old by June 30 to enroll in this program.
Set in the Early Childhood Center at East Woods School.
Camper to Counselor ratio of six to one.
These campers participate in a wide array of indoor and outdoor activities, including: swimming, sports/movement, games, arts, crafts, music, cooking, dance and more.
This program is perfect for children who are not ready for the full five day program but, still want to be exposed to the amazing experience of summer camp.
Half Day : 9AM to 12PM noon offered daily
Full Day : 9AM to 3PM offered daily
Campers must be 3 years old by June 30 and toilet trained.
At this age campers have the opportunity to experience activities similar to the older campers but tailored to the developmental stage. Activities include art, music, sports/movement, woodworking, crafts, swimming, dance, gymnastics, cooking, slip n slide, playground and more.

These campers will have several periods a day where they can select from a group of activities they want to do more of including The East Woods Weekly (writing, video, editing), rocketry, archery, Builders Club, team sports and more. Camper to counselor ratio is ten to one. Groups are led by certified teachers or mature adults with ample camp experience and a dedicated staff of college and high school aged counselors
Junior Counselors (Entering 8th, 9th, & 10th Grade)
Our Junior Counselor program answers the question: “What do we do with our 13, 14, or 15 year old who has outgrown being a camper but is too young to be a counselor?”
Junior Counselors will be assigned to activities that they enjoy. They will act as big brothers/sisters to our younger campers while having a summer of being involved with the program(s) they enjoy most.
The Program provides teens an opportunity to gain valuable work experience while having an amazing summer! They learn the value of responsibility and they experience the joys of working with children through interactive activities.
