About Day Camps

Day camps are geared for schoolchildren. They offer activities in a larger social setting, usually in the children's home town or nearby and the children return home in the evenings. Day camps can be booked by the day or by the week, depending on the institution organizing them. Day camps often offer enrichment activities, such as art, music, science or sports, although many families use it as a substitute for daycare. Many families must enroll their children in day camps during the summer so that they have supervision during the day. Camps foster children's emotional, social, and physical and creative growth through a range of interactive activities and relationships with role model counselors. Generally camps focus on young children, typically ages 3_12, with the exception of specialized camps that aim to develop specific skill sets which attract campers up through adolescence.
