Abato Program

Campers entering grades 1–3

The Abato program is designed for children entering grades 1–3. Campers start off their day with open play time. Then at 9:00 AM, the day kicks off with songs, skits and a story. After that, campers participate in a Kumbuka Adventure Zone Activity. This could include art, water activities, sports or activities in the park. After lunch, there is a full afternoon of activities, including all-camp games and activities.
