Greenwood's talented preschool teachers, Caterina Cegin, Karla Woods, Leticia Curiel and Mary Moore welcome children ages 3.5 to 6 to attend our summer camp. Children must have previously attended preschool. Children enrolled at Greenwood School will receive priority registration. We welcome families who are new to Greenwood School to attend our fun, nurturing summer camp.

Our mornings will be spent exploring the natural world around us at nearby Miller Creek Park, as well as many other beautiful spots in the area. We will focus our outdoor time in a variety of summer activities including gardening, water play, and exploration. The rhythm of our mornings will closely follow that of our regular early childhood day with seasonal songs, stories and crafts, and will include an organic snack each day.
