140 Acres of

Discovery, Learning & Fun

Junior Friends: Entering Pre-K (Age 4) - 1st Grade

Summer at Sandy Spring’s Junior Friends Camp is the perfect place for young campers to meet new friends, make new learning discoveries, and have plenty of summer fun. This full-day program for children ages 4 to 6 nurtures campers’ curiosity and offers a fun summer experience in a safe environment. Each cabin holds a camper to counselor ratio of 5 to 1, and is led by a veteran counselor, certified teacher, or someone in the education field. Every day presents opportunities for our young campers to socialize, have fun, learn new skills, build self confidence and make new discoveries. They have a well-rounded schedule with sports, art, music, swimming and so much more! Activities focus on the ever changing, ever developing needs of this age group. Our phenomenal Junior Specialists even give the junior cabin groups a small taste of the fun workshops we offer when they get older. Our Junior Friends also take part in our camp-wide special activities and traditions such as carnival day or the cardboard boat race!
