We are happy to accept 6-year-olds* who are mature enough to engage in discussions with their older peers and who are able to stay focused throughout our many exciting activities.
Note that behavioural problems that might arise with any camper, regardless of age, will be handled according to protocol (see registration form).
*Doing critical and creative thinking inquiries and activities with 6-year-olds or younger ones is definitely possible. However, within the format of our camp it is important that counsellors can attend to the needs of all those participating. This is our aim and guarantee to parents.
