Junior Day Camp

Summer Junior Day Camp is our youngest summer program, for children ages 5 and 6 years old (who will at least be entering kindergarten in the fall) from Northeast Ohio. Junior Day Camp is a closely supervised program to give children a safe, secure and nurturing environment in which to be introduced to the joys and benefits of camping and to expand their horizons. It runs Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Sessions of camp include a variety of exciting hands-on activities such as archery, canoeing, camp crafts, low-ropes course, fishing, hiking, outdoor skills, swimming, wildlife and environmental studies, theme days, campfires and S’mores! (Horseback Riding lessons and Climbing Wall Adventure are not offered to campers attending Junior Day Camp.)
