Preschool Day Camp

The Center for Possibilities in Hobart, Indiana, is offering a day camp program for preschoolers with developmental disabilities. The camp, entitled "How Does Your Garden Grow," will take place June 7-17th on Mondays through Fridays, from 8:30am to 1:45pm. Here are the promotional details:

Campers will have a wonderful time exploring all things that grow in a garden including flowers, fruits, vegetables, bugs and other crawly things. Activities will include planting seeds, exploring roots, painting with vegetables, digging for worms and water play.

Children 2-6 years old with a developmental disability are eligible to enroll. Camp will run for 2 weeks, Monday-Thursday, from 8:30am-1:45pm. A $20.00 enrollment fee and $40.00 camp fee will be due at time of enrollment. The enrollment fee will include a camp T-shirt and group picture. The Camp fee includes 5 hours of care with a 1 teacher to 5 campers ratio, hot lunches and am snacks, and all camp supplies. All fees are non-refundable. A waiting list will be created once full enrollment is reached.

Campers do not need to be independent in physical skills such as sitting up or walking or in self help skills such as toileting or eating. In order for camp to be enjoyable for each camper, parents are encouraged to consider if their child is able to handle stimulation, transitions, being around other children and exposure to colds and other respiratory ailments. Per State guidelines, Center for Possibilities shall not admit or maintain any child whose needs it obviously cannot meet or whose behavior would be dangerous for other children. (DPW Reg. 470IAC 3-4, 1-7). Center for Possibilities is a state license daycare program with 50 years experience providing service to individuals with developmental disabilities.
