Weekly Overnight Camp
Camp CaPella offers a weekly overnight camp for those campers who are ready to spend some time away from home. Overnight camp is most ideal for those campers who have completed at least one week of day with us and are age 8 and older. While each week of camp is dedicated to a certain age group, we welcome campers of all abilities within each week. 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.
Overnight campers arrive on Sunday afternoon and stay at camp until Friday afternoon. They are joined daily by our weekly day campers for a fun filled day of traditional camp activities. Please be sure to visit the Camp Activities page to learn more about what a typical day of camp might look like. Overnight campers will be provided with all meals and snacks. If a camper requires a special diet, please
let us know and we will do our best to accommodate. Always feel free to provide any foods you, or your camper, may need.
Overnight campers will be provided with a packing list prior to arriving at camp. The list will include things like a sleeping bag (or sheets and blanket if preferable), pillow, swim wear, clothes for the week, appropriate footwear, towels, bathroom necessities (toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, etc.) Electronics are not permitted. If you, or your camper, requires a cell phone, it will stay in the office and campers are
allowed 2) 15-minute periods per day for use. Any items of value such as jewelry, money, etc. must be left at home.
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.
