Designed for children ages two and a half to five years, our summer camp program includes a wide range of creative indoor and outdoor activities, with time to explore and discover, play and make friends. Since a good number of hours are spent outside during summer camp, the nursery school playground provides opportunities to cool off with outdoor water play that includes troughs, sprinklers and hoses. Building in the sand and playing on the climbing equipment are two other favorite outdoor activities. An adjoining wading pool is available for summer campers, whether enrolled in the swimming classes or not. Children bring their own lunches. Camp provides a morning snack.
3-Bears Camp is located in the Washington University Nursery School facility on the Washington University campus. It is composed of three classrooms and an all-purpose room, which are designed to offer children a variety of choices in their play. Our large outdoor play area gives children the opportunity to run, bike, swing, climb, slide, and play in the sand and water.
Children may take advantage of swimming lessons offered as an optional program during each session. There will be eight lessons per session, at a cost of $65. Children must be toilet trained to participate in swimming lessons. The swimming pool is located adjacent to the Nursery School.
