New for 2017!
This brand new offering incorporates the same structure and supportive 1:2 staff-to-camper ratio as our traditional day camp experience, but allows for the fun to continue all evening long! Campers choosing to "Plus" their day camp session will enjoy the typical camp offerings throughout the day before transitioning to Crescent Lodge, our new onsite conference and retreat center, for dinner and nightime activities.
Crescent Lodge offers a less rustic experience than traditional cabins, and is complete with indoor bathrooms, nightlights, and dorm-style bedrooms with bunkbeds (staff sleep on the top bunks and are always available throughout the night) to help campers feel at home. The familiar staff on the day camp team accompany them the entire time, including staying in the dorm rooms at night and helping them get ready for day camp the next day. The group is small with a maximum enrollment of 12 campers.
Even though DC+ is not a "day camp" because the campers are staying overnight, we named it Day Camp Plus on purpose: same kids, same counselors, same 1:2 ratio. With nighttime. :) We got the idea from our older day campers who have been attending for many years, and who are always asking us to have "more Thursday overnights!"
This 5-day, 4-night program is designed for day-campers ages 6 to 14 who enjoy camp but do not feel ready to stay overnight in a rustic cabin, or who do not need the 1:1 staff-to-camper ratio that our general overnight programs provide.
