DayCroix is a wonderful place for your child to experience fun, outdoor adventures this summer! New and returning campers thrive during a week packed full of exciting, structured activities. 

Hear the camp songs. Hear the laughter. Hear the outdoors (chirp). It’s camp time! Few environments are as distinctive and vibrant as camp. Here, kids become a community as they learn independence and group contribution – at the same time. Here, physical, social and educational activities pack kids’ days with discovery, friendship and wonder.

For ages 4-15
