More About CUBBER Jr:

Camp CUBBER has been serving the families of north Pinellas for over 25 years now.  What we know from that rich experience is that regardless of their child’s age, parents want a summer camp experience for their child that is fun, safe, and family friendly.  They want a place where their child will interact and grow cognitively, socially, emotionally, and physically.  That desire is never more true than for families with a child going into Kindergarten and first grade.  These kids, who will be experiencing camp for the first time, are forming that link between preschool (or the home) and the Kindergarten classroom environment.


At Camp CUBBER we help form that connection through CUBBER Jr., which serves only children entering Kindergarten and 1st Grade the upcoming school year.  This program, though very much a part of Camp CUBBER is in part somewhat its own entity as well.  CUBBER Jr. campers will have their own dedicated staff, their own separate opening session, and their own separate field trips.  Plus campers entering Kindergarten will even have their own dedicated classrooms.  They will participate in some of the Camp CUBBER activities (including art, music, science, creative play, and more), but in moderation, to make sure that they get introduced to the summer camp environment in just the right way.


Because we understand that this is potentially your child's first summer camp experience (and possibly your first summer camp experience as a parent), we try to make that transition as easy as possible.  One of the ways that we do that is by scheduling several weeks of only onsite guests and onsite activities before we start adding offsite field trips.  Just a way for you and your camper to become more familiar with camp before heading off on a field trip.  CUBBER Jr. field trips will include places like: Chuck E. Cheese, Build A Bear, Pump It Up, Future Flipz, the Tarpon Aquarium and much more.  Plus with onsite guests and activities like: live animal shows, science shows, magic shows, children’s theater performance groups, inflatables, a carnival, and even more, your child will be thrilled to attend CUBBER Jr.  But don’t miss out, spaces are limited and we usually are full within the first few weeks of registration.
