Ms. Julie is an experienced Early Childhood teacher with a BA in Early Childhood/ Psychology including multiple Summer Camp Sessions that provided Campers with great memories.

Julie joined the Y staff in 2012. During the school year, she is a Preschool Teacher at our Garwood facility. She has extensive experience working with young children. She is the mother of two beautiful girls and her daughter, “Miss Jessica” is also part of our Y staff. In her spare time, Julie loves to read, travel, and spend time with family.

My favorite part of camp is picking themes that are fun and interactive! Each new theme allows the Campers to have new experiences . A theme that I will be looking forward to the most is Seussology! (Session3) We will explore Dr. Seuss with art, reading, activities and exciting entertainment AND, we have lots of other fun themes planned for the whole summer!

Little Explorer Summer Camp 2017 Camp is a great way to start a childhood full of fun camps at The Y. Campers will be learning necessary social skills as they have tons of fun while EXPLORING through games, songs, arts and crafts, playground time, indoor play and group activities. Little Explorer Camp is unique because we tailor indoor and outdoor activities to allow young campers to socialize, play and learn in a safe, fun environment.

Water Play is always a great time for our Little Explorers. Each Tuesday and Friday, we put on our bathing suits and get wet! Sprinklers, water toys, sponges, and the hose provide all kinds of opportunities to splash and play as we EXPLORE water.

Little Explorer Camp is for 3-5 year olds. It is a half-day camp available in 2 week sessions. (3 or 5 days per week) Members can register on-line, everyone can register at the Welcome Center.
