Lower Camp: Pre-K and Kindergarten

Lower Camp (LC) groups work out of a home base where they keep personal belongings and change. This space also contains age-appropriate activities and accessories for free time, rest period, and snack time. LC's report directly to home base and typically do not attend morning Flagpole unless there is a special event. Each LC group is led by a lead staff member supported by a team of caring counselors. The average group size is 18. All LC campers must be fully potty-trained.

  • Lower Camp A - Turning 4 by the end of the calendar year
  • Lower Camp B & C - Age 4 or 5 by start of camp

Middle and Upper Camp: Grade 1 - Grade 9

Middle and Upper campers are also offered archery, American Sign Language, outdoor living skills, computer sciences and optional overnight camp outs. Activity periods run 35 minutes in length. Most activities are scheduled once a week except for swimming which is scheduled daily. Day camp groups are based on the grade a camper is going into during the school year following camp. The average group size is 18.

  • Middle Camp - Grades 1, 2 or 3
  • Upper Camp - Grades 4, 5 or 6
  • Upper Camp - Grades 7 and 8 - combined

All groups are coed. Campers in grades 2 - 5 who would prefer a single gender group should register for Super Camp program Just Girls or Just Boys.

Rising 9th grade campers must be enrolled as a Camper/Counselor-In-Training, our Leadership Training Specialty Camp program.
