Our Cottontails are the youngest campers out at Ketcha! Named for our New England Cottontail Rabbits that inhabit our own backyard. Cottontail traditional camp is a fun and exciting program with lots of personal attention by caring and well trained staff. Counselors focus on creating independence, working on social skills including making friends and leadership, encouraging campers to try new things and to appreciate differences. Our youngest campers participate in all of our traditional camp activities all week long including swim instruction! In addition, our Cottontail Campers have “max & relax” time after lunch every day.
We offer part-time options for Cottontail Campers. Please note that part time campers will not be present for some special events and they are grouped only with other part time campers. We will have one group with Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Tuesday/Thursday campers.
If your camper is toilet trained and knows how to communicate their basic needs they are ready for camp.
