Our Program

The success of our campers is centered on our age-specific groups, excellent staff, and our wide variety of activities. At Tate’s Day Camp, we provide traditional camp activities like swimming, arts & crafts, music, hands-on nature study, archery, boating, fishing, sports, games, and group initiative activities. Through hands-on activities and low counselor to camper ratios, camp builds self-esteem and provides an excellent opportunity for individual growth and maturity.

Different weekly themes help to keep camp exciting and fresh for our campers that come all summer. For a closer look at a typical week, there are two sample group schedules in the back of the Camper/Parent Handbook. about-program-imagePlease keep in mind – these are only samples and your child’s specific weekly schedule will vary. Because of the wide variety of activities we offer, there is often not enough time for a camper to participate in all of them!

All campers are divided into age-specific groups so they can interact with others who are on their physical and emotional levels. For reasons of safety, the age group of the child determines many camp activities. (i.e. only 2nd graders and up participate in archery.)

Due to the structure of our program, all campers must be completely potty trained and at least age three by the 1st of June. Our young campers have a blast, but they must be fully qualified for their true camp experience.

Our modern 50+ acre camp facility includes many large buildings, a fishing pond, and three swimming pools. We have recreational fields, woods, archery & marksmanship ranges, climbing tower, zipline, group initiative course, campfire rings, outdoor amphitheater and natural areas for environmental study and exploration.
