Laurelwood Day Camp is a great way for campers to start their camping experience and is offered to campers entering grades *K through Grade 9. Campers in 2nd - 7th grade also have the opportunity to try the overnight camp experience during our "Taste of Laurelwood" weekend and "Rookie Camp" programs. Laurelwood also offers specialty camps throughout the summer. 

Our day campers enjoy all of Laurelwood’s renovated and expanded facilities and programs throughout our beautiful 140+ acre campus. Day campers experience daily instructional and free swim periods, boating, tennis, soccer, volleyball and kickball instruction. They also participate in drama, nature, arts & crafts, music and special events. Our youngest campers love climbing, sliding and jumping aroundon our playscape!
