ABOUT DAY CAMPS
These themed daylong camps give youth the opportunity to be outside exploring, learning about and connecting with the natural world.
Camp starts at 8:30am and ends at 4:00pm each day. Each day features learning activities, nature games, crafts, hikes, swimming and a closing camper presentation, which adults are invited to attend.

If your child is 12 years or older and interested in helping at camp, they should consider volunteering as a Junior Counselor. Download the Junior Counselor Job Description and Application.

After Camp camp is offered each day of camp from 4:00pm – 5:30pm. For just an additional $3/child/day, families whose work schedule does not allow them to be to camp for the 4:00pm camp pickup, can choose to have their campers enjoy a bit more fun at Hunt Hill while allowing families to complete their typical workday.
