Early Start Imagination Camp (3-5 year old pre-k campers)
Do you think your Pre-K child is ready for camp? Oasis is the place for them!
Our Early Start Imagination Camp day is designed to meet the social, emotional, and physical needs of our Early Start Campers. For most children, camp means a set of “firsts,” this is especially true for our youngest campers—the first time playing with others, the first time learning to swim, and the first time riding a bus. The Oasis Early Start Imagination Camp program strives to create a nurturing transition into the camp environment, working hard to make both our families and campers feel safe. The ESIC campers are ages 3-5 who have not yet started Kindergarten and are fully potty trained. The Early Start Imagination Camp schedule is modified to meet the needs and skill level of our youngest campers. Being a larger camp, Early Start campers also have opportunities to participate in special events and activities with the entire camp community.
What's new for ESIC Summer 2017? "Ready for September"
The Ready for September program is taught by Early Childhood and Elementary professionals, one period of the camp day. The program is designed to be a FUN, interactive way for kids to learn in a relaxed, STRESS-FREE camp environment- unline the stresses of school throughout the year! Through this program, rising Pre-K and Kindergarten kids will learn and reinforce skills needed for school in September, while still maintaining the "Oasis Spirit!"

Why trust Oasis with your child?
- We have extremely low camper to staff ratios, providing one adult to every four children
- Our ESIC Instructors create activities that are specifically designed to meet the abilities and attention spans for our 3 to 5 year old campers.
- The daily schedule is designed to create a combination of physical and create activities that involves both structured and imagination play, allowing our campers to participate in a wide variety of age-appropriate activities.
- Our swim program focuses on developing our camper’s confidence in the water, water safety and basic aquatic skills. We base our instruction on the assessment of each camper’s individual skills. Campers are supervised by our American Red Cross trained lifeguard and swim instruction staff.
"Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning...They have to play with what they know to be true in order to find out more, and then they can use what they learn in new forms of play."
