Summer camp for preschoolers gets interest




A new program started this summer to fill a need for parents searching for a day camp for their preschooler.

The Boys and Girls Club, area parks departments and other organizations have summer camps for students in elementary school and higher grades, but it’s difficult to find summer-long camps or activities around the county for 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds, Johnson County Learning Centers executive director Dawn Underwood said.

The learning centers created a new summer camp after hearing from parents who couldn’t find programs for their preschoolers in June and July. A total of 15 children spent up to 10 hours each day at Northwood Elementary completing arts and crafts, conducting science experiments and playing games with sand and water.
