Your child can participate in the ever-popular “Theme Weeks”. Our counselor to camper ratio is 1 to 8. All counselors are CPR, First Aid, and AED certified. Their background checks include a formal employment application, reference checks, interviews, and live scans. Many of them are veteran counselors who return season after season, some having as many as seven seasons of experience.

If your child is a non-swimmer, swim lessons are available during day camp hours. We will be happy to escort your camper to and from the pool for their lesson. Just complete the swim lesson registration at the pool and let our staff know. Our campers enjoy a full hour of pool time each day separate from regular public swim.The Municipal Swimming Pools are located directly adjacent to the day camp program. Our Lifeguards and Water Safety Instructors are American Red Cross Certified and participate in extensive weekly training. Our pool offers morning and evening swim lessons of various levels and the pool staff and day camp staff work together, ensuring the safety of all our campers and pool patrons.
