Horseback Riding

DAY CAMP (Ages 5-12)

At Camp Miller, day campers participate in theme-based weeks full of activity and camp fun! Day Camp introduces campers to our four core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect,

and Responsibility. Day Campers become 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!


2020 Rates: $165 per week*

Campers are dropped off and picked up at the Mitchell Lodge between 7:45 – 9:00 AM for drop off and 4:30 – 5:30 PM for pick up, Monday through Friday.
