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.
Come to camp and experience games and activities from around the world. Afternoon group programming will focus on these themes and expose campers to new ideas and friends as they get acquainted with camp.
Come enjoy a week of mystery and intrigue as you try to solve some of Camp’s greatest puzzles. Programming will center around putting your inquisitive skills to the test. Channel your inner Sherlock Holmes and get ready for some fun!
Lights, Camera, Action! Enjoy a week of camp infused with your favorite songs, movies, and television shows. Group programming will be based on themes from the most popular movie and television of today and of the past. Get ready for stardom!
Don’t you wish every day was a holiday? Well for this week at camp, it will be! Programming each day will be based on your favorite holidays. Whether you are looking to celebrate Christmas in July, or want the 4th of July to never end, this is the week for you.
One of Camp Christopher’s greatest traditions over the years has been the stories and legends that are passed down from generation to generation. This week will have programming themes celebrating that legacy, as well as some of our favorite myths and legends from books, movie, and television.
Channel your sense of adventure and enjoy a week of broadening your horizons at camp. Large group programming will be centered on the idea of exploring new areas and skills, while celebrating great feats of exploration from the past. Camp may have been around for over 90 years, but there are always new limits to explore!
If you have ever dreamed of being a cowboy or rustling some cattle, this is the week for you. Large group programming will celebrate the American West and the people that inhabited it. Toss on a cowboy hat and saddle up!
Our last week of camp will feature challenges and competitions both big and small. Campers will have a chance to participate in a variety of group programs that challenge them both physically and mentally. There will be something for everyone to enjoy during our first Challenge Week!
