Perfect for campers entering PK-2nd grade, this program is designed to foster growth and development in a safe and nurturing environment. Activities are child centered, helping campers learn new skills and build social competencies. Please note: your child must be at least 4 years old when starting camp.
Typical Day at Tumbleweed South:
Once the buses arrive, our younger campers start the day off with morning round-up where they join their groups and greet each other with songs and laughter. A typical day consists of five periods of various traditional and unique day camp activities and will always include swimming and lunch. We try to schedule the major activities in two consecutive days to accommodate the flexible day scheduling available to all campers. Activities alternate between high and low energy. In the afternoon, our campers enjoy a snack and get ready for afternoon round-up where they sit with their bus route and participate in skits and songs through dismissal.
Horseback Riding- Campers 1st grade and 2nd learn the fundamentals of good horsemanship on gentle horses and ponies.
Swimming- Whether learning to swim or perfecting a new stroke, they get to go swimming everyday in our heated pool. All of our instructors and lifeguards are Red-Cross certified and trained in First Aid and CPR.
Junior Climbing Center- Designed specifically for younger campers, this low level course will help campers gain confidence and experience adventure in a safe setting. The area includes a horizontal climbing wall, cargo nets, a rope bridge, and zip line.
