Outdoor Playground and Castle Bounce: When our young campers need an outlet toDSCI0366.JPG let out their energy, they can take a bounce in our castle bouncer, or enjoy the fresh outdoor air while playing on the various play structures, sandbox and riding toys in our spacious outdoor playground.

3Gymnastics:  The children attend The Little Gym of Merrick for weekly gymnastic sessions with Evan, our favorite gymnastics teacher.  Each session is filled with movement, music, learning and laughter. From week to week, their age-appropriate curriculum is designed to facilitate ongoing skill development and maximum fun. Children progress at their own pace, developing their confidence as they develop their skills. These sessions also promote early development and provide a strong foundation for your child's early years.
