4-H Camp & Learning Centers at Tanglewood & Blueberry Cove

Site Navigation:

Day Camps, ages 4-12 - First Mates, ages 4-6

As the youngest campers at Blueberry Cove, First Mates have plenty of time to simply play, explore and discover the wonders of nature! Days are guided by nurturing rhythms to help make youngsters feel cared for and safe.  First Mates have their very own magical play land tucked into the forest.  Their cozy cabin tent is perfect for afternoon story time and for inside play on cold, rainy days.  Activities include visiting the farmyard to gather eggs and water the hens, building boats to sail at the beach, grinding grain and making bread, rowing across the harbor for a game of kickball and an ice cream, building fairy houses and spending the afternoon at the beach, searching for treasures, crabbing and swimming. This is a magical experience your child will not want to miss!

Rachel Carson - “If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.”
