Day Camp is an opportunity for kids (age 5-14) to get used to the idea of camp, but still, get to go home each night to sleep in their beds. There are many enriching activities that day campers get to participate in that makes the camp experience so much better than attending a daycare.
For example, we group campers of the same age and assign them to counselors trained in working with kids of that specific age group. Counselors ensure every camper has a meaningful experience by engaging them in a variety of activities and encouraging them to try new ones.
Day camp is about learning to work together with others, learning new skills, and learning about yourself. Your day camper will come home with greater confidence, new friends, and perhaps a new appreciation of who they are and what they are capable of achieving.
Day camp gives campers these opportunities in smaller doses. When they (and you) are ready, overnight camp is available!

The American Camp Association is the leading authority in youth development, and we use their standards to guide our decision-making process in all aspects of camp. These strict guidelines ensure a safe and fun summer for campers, staff, and camper families.
