Summer Day Camp Español

Day camp can offer almost all of the benefits of traditional camp—new experiences, skill building, a sense of community and lasting friendships — in rural and urban settings while allowing campers to return home each afternoon.

Our camps are ACCREDITED by the American Camp Association

Accreditation establishes up to 300 health and safety standards that include needed policies, procedures, and practices for which we are responsible for ongoing implementation. Accreditation lets the public know that our camp meets industry-accepted and government-recognized standards.  ACA accredited camp experiences allow children to grow, create, share, and have fun in a safe, structured environment. Former ACA CEO Tom Holland says, “Right now, the best evidence of a camp's commitment to your child's safety and growth in the summer is American Camp Association accreditation." ACA accredited camp programs are dedicated to the well-being of the children that participate. Is your child spending their summer with an ACA accredited program? If the answer is no, ask “Why not?”
