Through our Day Camp Program at Camp Christopher, hundreds of kids have the opportunity to cultivate the values, skills, and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health, and educational achievement. Our camps are exciting, safe communities for children and pre-teens to explore, build confidence, develop skills, and make lasting friendships and memories, so they can grow as individuals and leaders.
Few environments are as special as Camp Christopher, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social, and educational activities. Our Day Camp teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership – all amidst the fun of swimming, canoeing, archery, talent shows, and making new friends!
Camp Christopher’s Day Camp, an eight week program, offers a diverse, age appropriate experience in a safe and fun outdoor environment. Campers enjoy traditional camp activities like those mentioned above as well as its 160 acres of woods and trails. Throughout the summer, we will incorporate into our activities and discussions the Catholic values of Camp Christopher. In addition to the normally scheduled camper activities, each week of camp will also have its own theme that will serve to enhance the camper experience.
We separate our camp into two groups; the traditional program and our Adventure Day Camp. All campers will share the same program, meeting, and lunch space. Adventure Day Campers participate in advanced level activities throughout the day. We organize our camp with safety and developmental appropriateness as our highest concerns. Each week, we divide campers into smaller groups (typically 12 or less campers/group) of similar aged peers. Counselor assignments are reflective of the recommended staff ratios outlined in the standards of the American Camp Association. Each group has a schedule to follow throughout the day, but returns to the Day Camp Pavilion by day’s end. Each group forms its own mini-community throughout the week, enabling young people to spend consistent time together in order to help facilitate friendships.
