Creative Little Kids – CLK Program

Kids playing at CASA at Sheridan

Ages 3-K

Creative Little Kids (known around CASA as CLK) have the best of all worlds: the attention of early childhood teachers, coupled with the expertise of working artists, dancers, musicians, and athletes. Designed for children ages 3- entering Kindergarten in the fall, this engaging full-day program encourages exploration of the arts. Your child delves into limitless modes of expression: visual and performing arts, playing with color and light, building with blocks, and other imagination-stretching activities. Ready to burn off some energy? Nature discovery, water play, and other outdoor activities emphasize socialization and collaboration with friends. CLKs stay together as a group, learning to make wise and reasoned choices, interact positively with their environment, develop meaningful friendships, and deepen self-esteem.

The CLK campers will be grouped by age. Three, four, and five, six-year-olds will have designated classrooms. There are exemptions in case two campers would like to be together. Please write your child's friend on the online registration or notify us via email. Three-year-olds will have an afternoon “quiet” time for napping or resting; please send them a change of clothes and their favorite nap items on the first day of camp (marked with his/her name). All children, regardless of age, need to be potty-trained before beginning camp.
