Weekly Day Camp
Day camp runs Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
Camp CaPella offers a weekly day camp option for those campers who prefer to be with their families or caregivers overnight. Day camp is also a great opportunity for those who have never attended camp before. We encourage new campers to attend one year of day camp before stepping up to the weekly overnight camp option.
Day campers attend daily, Monday to Friday, from 8:30am to 4:30pm. They will join our weekly overnight campers for a fun-filled day packed with camp activities. While each week is dedicated to a certain age group, we welcome campers of all abilities within each week of camp. Part of the magic of camp is the ability to participate and spend time with friends regardless of one's ability. We believe this also allows our campers to feel comfortable in a judgement free zone, while also learning about different abilities and inclusion. Please be sure to visit the Camp Activities to page to learn more about what a typical day of camp might look like!
Day campers should plan to bring at least 2 snacks, a lunch, swimsuits, swim towels, swim shoes, and a change of clothes - it is camp and you never know what will happen! While we strive to offer transportation assistance from a central meeting location, such as Brewer Walmart, we cannot guarantee this will be available. Please inquire about transportation assistance upon applying to camp. Many of our campers prefer to be dropped off/picked up by a parent or caregiver.
The cost to attend one week of camp is $1500. However, we understand that for many this simply is not possible. We ask that campers contribute as much as possible towards the full cost. The average camper share is $300. We do offer campership programs to assist in covering the difference. There is a portion of our application that will detail this more. If you are concerned over cost, or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office. We pride ourselves on maintaining a policy that no one is turned away based on ability to pay! Everyone deserves an opportunity to experience camp!
When applying to Camp CaPella, please be sure to refer the eligibility policy within the application carefully. We never enjoy turning away a camper, but it is crucial for the safety of all campers, that the eligibility policy is met. If you are unsure if your camper would be a good fit, please do not hesitate to contact our office. We are happy to discuss all options and help plan for a successful camp experience.
Please know that Camp CaPella is a small summer camp experience, and this is done with intent to provide a safe, inclusive environment for our campers. Space can be limited. If we are unable to accept a camper due to space, the camper is placed on a wait list in case of cancellation, as well as, noted in the camper file that we were unable to accommodate due to space and moves to the top of the list for the following camp season. Please be sure to review the camper application for the application deadline for the upcoming camp season.
