Twinkle Day Camp – Ages 5-6
Twinkle Day Camp features a different theme each session that speaks to the curious minds and imaginations of our youngest campers. Twinkle Day Campers will have the opportunity for more individual attention from our counselors and a schedule created with their energy and silliness in mind. While there are some offsite activities planned, twinkle day camp will not travel outside of Summit County.
