Day Camp

Established in 1991, Summer’s Edge Day Camp is an ACA Accredited Camp for campers ages 3 1/2 to 14 years old. Our camp is organized by age into Mini Camp, Middle Camp, and Senior Camp.

Our high rate of returning campers and staff members is evidence of a community that awaits the day that Summer’s Edge opens each season. Each summer we proudly acknowledge campers and staff members who have been a member of the Summer’s Edge Community for 10, 15, 20 and 25 years!

A Typical Day at Camp

Campers arrive at 9:00 am to gather as a community for morning announcements, followed by the first scheduled group activity. At 10:00 am a short break is scheduled for a casual picnic style snack. Three additional morning periods include two scheduled activities as well as Red Cross swimming lessons. Summer’s Edge offers a variety of activities in the morning schedule which give each camper the opportunity to try every activity in camp.

The staff encourages campers to fully participate in the morning schedule with their group. Morning periods are approximately 35 minutes in length. The entire camp breaks for lunch at 12:15 pm in Minuteman’s air-conditioned cafeteria. Campers bring their own snack and lunch to camp each day; refrigeration is available.

The afternoon schedule features free choice activity periods. Campers choose between a physical or a non-physical activity (nature crafts for example), and the choice activities change each day. The afternoon periods are approximately 50 minutes in length. The camp community convenes for end of the day announcements and campers are dismissed to their respective parent(s)/guardian(s) at 3:30 pm.
