2015 DAY CAMP INFORMATION

From exciting themed activities to environmental exploration, day camp offers a unique opportunity to explore the world and have fun in the outdoors.

With new friends and programs for every interest, your summer will come to life. Create works of art, play with glop, eat lunch with fairies, try your hand at a new sport, and much more. You’ll get the best of both worlds - a day full of fun activities at camp, and a good night’s rest in your own bed!

Daily schedules vary based on the weekly theme, grade level, and the girls’ interest. Regardless of which program you choose, all campers will take part in camp-wide activities, crafts, songs, games, and swimming!

Day Camp programs are available for girls entering grades 1-8, with additional leadership opportunities for girls entering grades 6-12.
