Little Indians

The Little Indians is a special program at Saginaw Day Camp (SDC) for children four and five years old. The Little Indians program emphasizes social skills, independence, and positive self image. Further, acting responsibly, organization, and conscientiousness are highlighted on a daily basis.

The coordinator of the Little Indians is Eileen Kuptsow, who has spent the past seven summers working with preschoolers in a camp setting, and has a wealth of experience in this area. With an increased staff to camper ratio of 3:1, we are committed to providing your child with the support needed to achieve social and life skills within a fun and safe environment.

The Little Indians participate in many of the activities that other SDC campers enjoy, but adjustments are made to meet their specific size and skill level. Some of these activities include go-karts (two-seaters are available to ride with counselors), arts & crafts, archery, canoeing, adventure course, climbing wall, and both instructional and recreational swimming daily. Additionally, there are many activities exclusive to the Little Indians such as a moon-bounce, gardening, and aqua-tivities (water games). For our athletics program, teamwork and skill building are emphasized in all sports.

Following a daily lunch, we provide an extended rest period, giving the Little Indians an opportunity to rejuvenate for their afternoon activities in their own air conditioned building.

For those interested in having young children stay only part of the camp day, we also offer a Little Indians "Mini-Day" program. Instead of a full day, campers arrive at 9:00am and are picked up at 1:45pm.

Cost for the Little Indians is the same as the price for all of our campers, $425 per week with a two week minimum, decreasing to $410 per week when you enroll for four weeks or more. We also offer a single week session to first time campers for $435 per week. The cost for the "Mini-day" program is $340 per week.
