Camp Programs

Every day is a new day camp adventure in the great outdoors

Every Willowgrove day camper will participate in programs that expose children to all the natural beauty of our 100-acre location. We also strive to emphasize peace in all of our programming and camper learning.

Willowgrove Day Camp serves a diverse clientele of campers with a variety of co-ed programs, including age specific programs. Ask the campers what programs they like best and you will get a long list that includes Swimming, Nature, Canoe and Kayaking, Biking, Outdoor Cooking, Creek, Wagon Rides, Peace, Archery and Rock Climbing.

“Whether they are exploring the creek, cooling off in one of the pools, or holding baby animals in the barn, we want our campers to leave us with a smile on their face, and a better appreciation for the value and importance of their natural environment,” explains Willowgrove Day Camp Director, Miriam Reesor .

Program Divisions

All programs are supervised by highly trained staff who have passed through a demanding interview process and completed several training events.

The counselor to camper ratio ensures every camper will have a safe and enjoyable day camp experience:
