Jr High Day Camp (grades 6 – 9)

All the fun of summer camp with the option of sleeping at home!
This day camp is for older campers who prefer to sleep at home, rather than staying overnight at camp. These campers participate in the same program as the Jr High Overnight campers, except they go home at 5:00 PM each night. Campers will enjoy age appropriate activities including: swimming, water toys (including a giant obstacle course and Wibit Action Tower), boating, archery, arts and crafts, kayaks, canoes, field inflatables (giant slide and obstacle course), and more.

Age/Grade Level: Entering Grades 6 – 9
Schedule: Monday – Friday

    Special Schedules

    If your child needs to miss any portion of their camp session, please notify the main office of your schedule as soon as possible. All late arrivals and early departures will take place in the main office. Notifying your child’s counselor of early pick up times will not ensure your child will be ready when you arrive; please call the main office at (425) 746-9110.

    Campers that arrive late or depart early will miss a portion of the camp program and will not be able to make up missed activities. Campers who arrive late Monday morning will miss being in the camp picture. Should you schedule a pick up for your child in the middle of an activity, they may need to miss the entire activity. In fairness to other campers, boats will not be brought back before the scheduled end time of each activity block.

    Please check with our registrar concerning the best time to pick up your child if they must leave early.
