Berkwood Hedge School:

The beautiful space includes: a large community room with a kitchen; indoor classrooms and art spaces; outdoor play area with climbing structure, swings, and sand play. We bring our variety of toys and sports equipment-hoolahoops, lunastix, soccer, basketballs, baseballs, medic balls, etc. from our vans for extra fun! The indoors will have board games, manipulatives and arts and crafts materials within easy reach of the kids.


We expect the Strawberry and Banana Groups (ages 4 ½ -6) to spend much of the day together; also, the Mango and Coconut Groups (ages 7-10). They will have time in smaller groups for playshops. All campers share morning time outside, lunch and post-lunch play time and afternoon extended care. On days with smaller enrollment, all campers are together. If you need to make any special requests regarding age grouping for your child, please contact our office.
