Hope West Des Moines Preschool offers two weeks of themed summer camps for children ages 3-5! Families can sign up for one or both weeks. Children must be potty-trained (no pull-ups, please).

June 3-6: Animals in God’s Kingdom
Lions, tigers, and bears – oh my! This week is all about animals, including those on safari, at the barnyard and at the zoo.

June 10-13: Out of This World
Blast your camper into orbit with activities that will send them over the moon. We’ll turn up the curiosity as we look for new discoveries and unlock our imaginations through science experiments, art and creative play.

Learning Is Fun!

We know that learning is everywhere: in the flicker of a firefly, in the creeping of a quiet spider, in the warmth of a hug. God has blessed children with the joyous gift of learning, and we celebrate that gift at Hope West Des Moines Preschool!
