Adelaide Jane Goes to Camp

My baby girl loves to play and be outdoors so Camp Saw Mill seemed like a must do this summer. It is at the gym where she has been going since she was 6 weeks old so she is very familiar with the facility and staff. Plus she will be attending their two's program in the fall with these specific teachers so I thought the summer camp would be a great bridge to school.

The camp runs every week this summer and can be two days up to five days. Whatever needs you have they will meet. I enrolled Adelaide for three separate weeks throughout this summer and for two days only. It is only for 2 1/2 hours so not long but enough time for her to do some arts & crafts, story time, snack, playground play, and water fun. Her first week was last week and it was such a big thing!

I bought her the book The Night Before Summer Camp as a special treat to read before going. Then I packed up her bag of stuff...swimsuit, change of clothes, snacks, towel, diapers, etc. Holding her hand, she had her backpack on and trotted into the classroom. She looked so grown up in that moment. Hesitant at first to let go of my hand, she eventually found the puppies and was off to play with the
other kids.

When I picked her up, she was running around splashing all about in her swimsuit. It was the cutest thing to see her playing with her friends and discovering the world around her. She had a blast and this mommy survived her first drop off camp!

Hope your summer is off to a great start!
