2018 Day Camp Weekly Themes

Day Camp at Camp Chingachgook

There is nothing better than spending your summer along the shores of Lake George, in the beautiful Adirondacks! We run 9 weeks of a Monday – Friday Day Camp for campers ages 5-10. Each week has the chance to combine traditional camp activities (like swimming, archery, rock climbing, canoeing and crafts) with a special theme! Check out this year’s themes for each week below. We also offer an optional overnight each Thursday so campers can get ready for Overnight Camp in the future! We currently have spots left in all our day camp weeks, but spaces are filling up quickly so click here to sign up today!
