Grade Groups

Junior camp is for children entering grades 1 through 5 in the fall of 2024 (not the grade they are currently in), we can not make exceptions for children entering Kindergarten. Senior camp is for children entering grades 6 through 8 in the fall of 2024. We always split kids up into age-appropriate groups, which generally consist of 1st Grade, 2nd & 3rd Grade, 4th & 5th Grade, and then Seniors (Grades 6-8). 

Lunch & Snacks

Campers should bring their lunches with them each day. Please don't let your camper leave home without lunch and a beverage. We ask that you please do not send money with your camper to buy a beverage on campus as we cannot escort the campers to stores or vending machines.

Camp Dress

Shorts, T-shirts, and sneakers are appropriate. Due to the activities scheduled for each day, we ask that you do not allow the campers to wear sandals or crocs to camp. This footwear can be dangerous to children and can cause injury when participating in athletic activities.

Campers will need bathing suits and towels each day. We also recommend bringing sunscreen every day. On cool days, please provide your camper with a light jacket or sweater.

Campus Construction

Please review the letter from the Office of the Vice President for Facilities, which outlines construction projects in/around Dillon Gym.
