Eligibility: Campers entering K and 1st grade
Supervisor: Amy Podolsky (please visit our Meet the Staff page to find out more about Amy).
The Fox Program allows our young campers to enjoy the full Sewataro experience within a developmentally appropriate schedule and under the guidance of child-care professionals. With our careful attention to their programming and staffing and our investment in their special facilities, we have created an ideal place for young children to grow socially and physically during the summer.
Programming: All their activities are tailored for success at these ages from carefully selected crafts projects, to playing puff hockey instead of field hockey, to enjoying canoe rides at boating. Just like all Sewataro campers they work toward weekly spirit awards, perform at closing exercises, and participate in the famous Sewataro Friday Special Events.
Staffing: Each Fox tribe has an experienced child care professional as a Head Counselor. Along with their assistants, they remain with the tribe throughout the day.
Facilities: Fox camp has it’s own mini basketball court, shady playing fields in the meadows that are closer to the tent area, so young legs don’t have to walk so far, and an Adventure Kingdom complete with a trolley to give them a taste of the thrill that awaits when they are old enough to try the zip-line. In addition, they have their own Magic Treehouse and, of course, the ever popular Sewataro Sand Kingdom.
Activities: Fox campers enjoy a mix of the following activities throughout the course of a week.

My daughter had the most amazing time! She woke up every day excited for camp and then came home with a huge smile singing camp songs and sharing stories about the wonderful things she did all day. Her counselors were simply outstanding. I visited camp twice and could see immediately why she loved her counselors so much. They were always so kind, thoughtful, fun and carried huge smiles on their faces —clearly they love their jobs. My daughter developed such wonderful relationships with her counselors and as a parent, we felt so comfortable that our daughter was with such kind and caring people who always had her safety and well being top of mind. I loved my summer camp as a child and am so glad I can give my daughter a similar experience. Sewataro is a magical, wonderful place.
