Mighty Munchkins 2.0 is a full day program with exciting weekly theme based preschool activities and an experienced staff that will leave campers with lots to talk about on the ride home. With a low camper to staff ratio, our preschoolers get plenty of attention as they run through sprinklers on our wet and wild water days on campus or experiment with the different kid friendly features offered at our own natural playground. Teachers take a thematic approach to activities each week as campers dabble in arts and crafts, gym, music/movement, storytelling and cooking. Favorite themes from last summer include Diggin’ Dinos and Slitherin’ Snakes. Each Friday is celebrated with a culminating activity to bring in the weekend. See schedule for details.

*Note: Any child age three and potty trained through those entering fifth grade in the fall is eligible to attend Lower School Day camp. Due to the number of transitions throughout the camp day, we require that Mighty Munchkin campers manage themselves independently when using the potty. Regular breaks and lots of encouragement will be part of the day to assist in this process. While we understand that accidents can and will occur from time to time, we do not have the staffing in place to manage more regular accidents with campers while also maintaining the integrity of our program. If the occasional accident becomes a regular pattern of behavior, then we reserve the right to dismiss campers at our discretion.

Location: 
The Lower School Day Camp is located at the Lower School campus of Wilmington Friends School, just off Granite Road in Alapocas. On-site facilities include a large multipurpose gym, two art/computer/activity rooms, a kitchen, locker rooms, and outdoor fields and play equipment. 
 
Clothing and Toys: Children should wear cool, comfortable, weather appropriate clothes to camp, and be prepared for both outdoor and indoor activities. All campers must wear sneakers and socks. Please do not send your child to camp in sandals. Campers will not need to bring toys to camp. While it is appropriate for our Mighty Munchkin campers to bring a favorite blanket or stuffed animal to help them relax during quiet time, all other toys and electronic devices are prohibited from being brought to camp. 
 
Absences: If your child is going to be absent, please call (302) 576-2998 after 7:30 a.m. to inform the camp staff. 
 
Lunches and Snacks: Snack will be provided to all campers in the mid-morning and to those enrolled in After-Camp Care. Water or juice is available throughout the day. Campers will need to provide their own lunches in insulated bags or coolers. Please pack lunches that do not require additional refrigeration or heat. On Wednesdays, campers will have the option to purchase pizza for lunch; information will be available each week about “Pizza Wednesdays.”
