Overnights At Day Camp

Overnights at Day Camp

Girls staying overnight on Wednesday will sleep in A-Frames. Staff will sleep, likewise, in separate tents, but very near the girls. Each tent sleeps four girls. The $10.00 fee for the overnight includes dinner and an evening snack Wednesday as well as breakfast and lunch on Thursday. Please indicate on the registration form if your daughter will stay for the overnight program. Parents/guardians please understand that you are making the decision that your child is old enough to handle an overnight camp experience. If for some reason your child has a hard time adjusting to the overnight camping experience and you receive a call from the camp director indicating your daughter’s difficulty, you will be required to pick your child up from camp regardless of the time. To assure a smooth overnight experience for your daughter, we strongly encourage you to take the “Ready for Camp Quiz.” Girls can also go to resident camp at Timbercrest and Seven Hills! Please see our website for more information.
