Camp Jefferson Summer Day Camp

Summer Day Camp at Camp Jefferson

A Program for All Children

Unfortunately and sadly, Camp Jefferson Summer Day Camp will not be returning for its 17th season of Camp in 2020 due to COVID-19. The staff will continually strive to offer exciting new activities on site and stimulating off-site trip experiences for the Camp 2021 program while still providing campers with their ever-favorite games and events.

The Camp Jefferson staff does its utmost to ensure that campers are in a safe and caring environment at all times. Its colorful state-of-the-art playground, open fields, rustic buildings, lake area, and woods lend themselves to a picturesque natural environment offering activities for kids of all ages.
