  • Kids bring their own lunch and we provide a simple, nutritious snack
  • Group Size: 8 Children with two Taproot Teachers
  • Dates: Summer Sprouts runs each week from June 3-August 16.  Children may sign up for any or all weeks. We will offer a 3-day Sprouts Camp July 1-3, with no camp on Thursday, July 4 or Friday, July 5.
  • A $100 deposit is required for each child each week. The deposit is refundable until May 1. After that, it's only refundable in the case of illness, emergency, or circumstances beyond your control.

Two adult teachers guide the Sprouts each week. Parents can install and remove their Sprouts car seat each day, or leave a seat in the van for the week.

The beginning and ending locations for Sprouts Camp are yet to be determined. It will almost certainly be either Happy Hollow Park or Scott Park, both in Iowa City.

Age Guidelines

The ages listed for all Taproot Programs are flexible guidelines rather than rigid rules. The Taproot teachers are happy to discuss with parents the individual capabilities and personalities of their children and decide upon the best camp, even if the child does not fall within the recommended age window.

Early Drop-Off

Parents may drop off children at Happy Hollow between 7:45 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. You can pre-register for early drop-off for the whole week for $20.  Drop-in early drop-off costs $5/day, billed after the camp week.
