DAY CAMP (Ages 5-12)
At Camp Miller, day campers participate in theme-based weeks full of activity and camp fun! Each session lasts one week and runs Monday through Friday with days beginning at 9:00 am and ending at 4:30 pm. We also provide extended care from 7:45 am until 5:30 pm to allow working parents enough time for drop off in the morning and pick up in the evening.
Day Camp introduces campers to our four core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. Day Campers become a part of the Camp Miller community as they gain confidence and independence through traditional camp activities such as arts and crafts, climbing the tower, field games, horseback riding, swimming in the lake, and more. Many day campers eventually become overnight campers and love that they already know the ropes here at camp!
