The SAM Playcare program is our day camp for the little girls and boys, ages 2.5-4. Campers participate in circle time, dress up, story telling, arts & crafts, swimming, weekly mini-sports clinics, and more.
The SAM Playcare program promotes constructive expression of emotions and strives to provide a framework for children to interact with others comfortably and to develop a healthy sense of self-worth. There is a wide range of planned activities designed to encourage the development potential of each child. These activities are mixed with periods of supervised, unstructured play through which children learn social interaction and social interaction and problem-solving. We encourage the moral, social, and emotional development of each child and create fun and positive experiences for the campers.
Campers swim at least once a day in a safe aquatic atmosphere designed to meet their ability. Certified Red Cross instructors supervise each pool and encourage the development of swimming skills throughout the summer. SAM Playcare campers will receive swim instruction during their pool time.
SAM Playcare campers are grouped according to their age and potty training status. Our groups are small (no more than 14 campers) and supervised by at least 2 caring, nurturing, mature and talented counselors.
Our SAM Playcare campers are grouped as follows:
• Playful Pandas: ages 2.5 & 3
• Bouncing Bears: age 4
SAM Playcare offers weekly mini-sports clinics designed to teach the fundamentals of popular sports on an age appropriate level to encourage teamwork and physical fitness. Our qualified sports instructors have the expertise to adaptively design the clinics to meet the needs of individual skill levels and abilities within the camper groups. Campers will learn the basic fundamentals, rules of the game, and of course the FUN of the sport! Campers do not need prior experience or knowledge of the particular sport in order to participate. At At SAM Playcare, we emphasize teamwork, cooperation and sportsmanship rather than competition.
