About Garden Camp at BHA Preschool 2020 Enrollment










BHA Pre-School will host a four-week summer session from July 6th-July 30th, Mondays through Thursdays, for children 2-4 years old.  Currently, our Summer Garden Camp registration is full.  If a spot does open we will draw from our waitlist.  You can add your child to our waitlist by filling out the Garden Camp Registration form. 

This Summer Garden Camp is is an extension of our regular school-year program, with an emphasis on gardening projects and nature play. Our daily schedule includes open-ended exploration, art, movement, music, dramatic play/story making, and snack time.

Families who are new to BHA Preschool/Summer Garden Program, once you have registered, we will arrange a day for you and your child to visit while preschool is in session, so that we can meet and begin to get to know your child. 

Please contact Preschool Director, Ilana Friedman with any questions.



  • Programming runs Monday-Thursday, 9:00-11:55am, and there is no camp on Friday.

  • You may register for 2 days, 3 days, or 4 days per week. You choose which days, pending availability. 

  • Enrollment is for all four weeks of our summer session: the weeks of July 6, July 13, and July 20, and July 27. 


Please consider your child’s needs with this in mind before your enroll:

  • As with BHA Preschool, our Summer Garden Camp provides nurturing guidance and an engaging environment.But compared to the regular school year, we have less time and fewer staff to support a child with severe separation anxiety. Participants must be able to separate from their primary caregivers fairly easily to have a successful experience.
  • The group spends most of the time outdoors, where it can be hot, wet, and buggy. We encourage sunblock and bug lotion. We love getting messy and cooling off in the sprinkler. That said, participants are expected to manage discomfort from the outdoor elements with a mostly easy going demeanor.

If you believe your child will cope well with these aspects of Summer Garden Camp, we encourage you to enroll. If not, hold off until they are ready, rather than subjecting them to stressors. Camp is supposed to be fun!

Is your child ready for preschool? Here is our criteria for participation in the BHA Preschool.

We look forward to a fun and enriching summer with the children!
