Traditional Day Camp- ages 3-14

TRADITIONAL DAY CAMP

Our traditional day camp is offered all camp weeks.  Campers are grouped by age and travel with that group and counselor for the week.  If campers attend multiple weeks in a row they will remain in the same group.

Traditional campers will have an opportunity to visit all of our Program Areas where Program Staff lead activities for the group.  The group counselor remain with the group to assist and participate.
