Summer Camp 2018 - In Ross Valley

Coming Soon: Summer Camp 2019!  Come Join Us!

Summer is for fun and we have lots of fun in store just for preschoolers -- 2 1/2 to 6 years of age -- at First Friends located in downtown Fairfax. 

Each two week session will be organized around a particular theme. We will read books and do projects related to our theme. Additionally, materials for our practical life, sensorial, math, language and art shelves, as well as the sensory bin and play dough will also reflect each session's  theme. For each session, we will invite a visitor into our school to make a theme-related presentation or the session will culminate with a theme-related celebration. Our projects are very hands on and include: cooking, art creations, science experiments and dramatic play. Our goal is to have fun, be creative and learn!
