Twilights Day Camp

July 9 - July 13

Ages: 9-10, co-ed


This hands-on, five-day program is the next step for day campers who need that extra year or two before begin their overnight camp career. It includes an extended day in mid-week allowing campers to get a taste of overnight camp by joining us for dinner in the dining hall and participating in evening program before getting picked up at 8:45pm. As an older day-camp program, campers will be engaged in age-appropriate activities that will enhance their self-confidence and further prepare them for a transition into the overnight camp stream. Campers will participate in a range of activities that were introduced in our regular day camp with a greater focus on skills development.

• Archery
