Camp Tannadoonah offers a day camp program that is perfect for younger campers to try out camp! It's also a great option for summer childcare. There are special discounts available for campers who sign up for 6 or more sessions of day camp in the same summer.
What better way to spend your summer than outside with friends, enjoying nature, canoeing on beautiful Birch Lake, practicing your archery skills, and making crafts? We try to make the day camp experience as similar to the overnight camp experience as we can. For the past two summers, we have had to make adjustments to the day camp schedule and structure, but we are hoping to return to our "normal" day camp program in 2022.
Day Camp Drop Off is in the circle in front of the Welcome Center. Day campers may arrive at any time after 7:30am, and if they arrive by 8am they may join us for breakfast. We recommend that day campers arrive before 9:30am, which is when the first formal activity of the day begins. Parents must sign their camper in with a staff member upon arrival each day.
At the end of the day, parents may pick day campers up any time before 6pm. The last formal activity of the day ends at 5:15pm, so we recommend picking up between 5:30 and 6, but if you arrive earlier we will radio your camper’s group to bring them to the check out area. Day Camp pick up is in the circle in front of the Welcome Center. Parents must sign their camper out with a staff member upon leaving each day.
On Friday evening, Day Campers may stay for Dinner and the Council Fire evening program. If your day camper is going to stay on Friday evening, you should plan to pick them up at 9pm.
There may be an opportunity for day campers to sleep over one night at camp. We have not been able to offer this option in 2020 or 2021 due to COVID restrictions, but hope to be able to in 2022. Please check back for updates in the spring!
