The teachers plan many hands-on activities in art, nature, cooking, music, drama, and literature which can be explored at varying levels by children at different stages of development. Each session has a theme, but there is always time for lots of free play, for reading a book in the shade, or for examining an interesting plant on our wonderful playground.
Camp Co-Op provides an exceptional experience for young children and offers a unique program. Camp Co-Op teachers are experienced at the Fayette Cooperating Preschool. They are sensitive to the needs of young children, and they enjoy working with multi-age groups. Camp staff and volunteers provide an excellent adult/child ratio of 1:4. Camp Co-Op is operated by the Fayette Cooperating Preschool which was established in 1951. Co-op is a non-profit, non-discriminatory, independent educational institution, licensed by Kentucky’s Cabinet for Health and Family Services.
