Welcome to The Kinder Club NEST at CAMP ALVERNIA

We have been serving the community since 1995
The Kinder Club NEST is located on the beautiful campus of Camp Alvernia in Centerport, NY.  Our program is largely based on Science and Nature, and the amazing natural surroundings and fresh air inspire and prepare our Preschool and Kindergarten Enrichment students for learning.  In the classroom, we build skills and instill concepts that teach children how to learn. Our proven inquiry-based collaborative approach helps guide children’s natural curiosity towards discovery.

We focus on:
  • Character Development
  • Leadership Skills
  • Team Building
  • Service Learning
  • Public Speaking

Our programs include:
  • Reading and Writing Skills
  • Basic Math
  • Art Exploration
  • Music and Movement
