Every summer, Day Camp is our most popular program. We offer a wide range of age appropriate activities within a schedule that is carefully planned to incorporate themed days, special events and a balance of indoor and outdoor activities. Our Day Camp offers all the activities and special events you would experience at a sleep away camp without the long drive. This dynamic program will allow you to develop your talents, grow in new directions, and meet new friends. Our day camp is a 8-week program and campers can sign up for 2-8 weeks depending on the sessions.
Great Adventures to Senior Division Groupings
Campers are divided into five divisions based on age and grade. Each division is then broken down into smaller, coed groups of similarly-aged campers. In addition to the traditional activities described earlier, each division is geared to meet the unique and special needs of its age group. Below, click the “View video” link to see a typical day in the life of each camper division.
Each summer, the groups are named based on a theme that is chosen by the staff during orientation. For example, the theme for Summer 2012 was Office Supplies, and we had group names like the Rockin’ Rubberbands, Krazy Glues, Mighty Duct Tapes, and the Rowdy Rulers. What will your group’s name be this summer? Come find out!
