Day camps are the perfect way to enjoy an introductory experience at Bryant Pond. Prepare for a fun-filled week of outdoor adventures. Our day camps will engage your child in hands-on exploration, inquisitive play, and educational activities. Activities such as critter catching, canoeing and kayaking, hiking, outdoor exploration, geology, and other activities vary from program to program, and even week to week. There’s always something new to discover at day camp! Campers will enjoy picnic lunches and spending time in the garden or interacting with our animals. Other activities include arts and nature crafts, wildlife tracking, swimming and so much more.
WTB – Day Camp
Please note: Your camper day runs from 8 am to 4:30 pm Monday to Thursday. Friday is a shorter day with a pickup time of 12:00 p.m.
Each week of day camp has new and exciting themes!
Mysteries of Bryant Pond (6/26/23-6/30/2023)
Are you a good detective? Start your week with Spy School and then you will be ready to help your group solve the Bryant Pond Mystery! Each day the group will work to solve part of the mystery and by the end of the week, you will have solved the mystery. Campers will participate in special detective activities that may include tracking or making their own magnifying glass. Campers will also have plenty of time for their favorite camp activities too such as Swimming, Boating, Survival, Nature Exploration, Geology, and much more.
Passport to Fun (7/3/23-7/7/2023)
Join us for a travel adventure around camp with your Bryant Pond Passport. You will begin by creating your passport. Then spend the rest of your week collecting all our unique camp passport stamps at all of our fun camp activities. Some of the activities you can look forward to doing are Swimming, Boating, Survival, Geology, and many more.
Secret Agent (7/10/23-7/14/2023)
Have you ever wanted to be a secret agent? Then this is your week of camp! Begin the week by participating in Secret Agent School where you will learn all you need to know to make a great secret agent. Then prepare for some fun activities! You might try writing in invisible ink, decoding your daily schedule, or maybe your group will partake in an Escape Room challenge at camp. You will also have time for your favorite traditional camp activities such as Swimming, Boating, Survival, Nature Exploration, and much more.
Race around Camp (7/17/23-7/21/2023)
Like the TV show Amazing Race, campers will find their way around camp using the clues they receive throughout the day. The race will include both traditional camp activities as well as special race-themed activities and challenges. You may find yourself participating in Swimming, Boating, or Survival. But you may also play a life-size game of Memory, play Pantyhose Bowling, and much more. No matter what activities you do, there will always be another clue waiting for you!
Hunters and Gatherers (7/24/23-7/28/2023
Have you ever wanted to be a hunter (treasure hunter) or a gatherer (scavenger hunts)? This is your chance to try them out at camp. Your hunts may include digging for minerals in our Geology pit, searching the woods for animal tracks and signs of wildlife, or maybe dipping for and identifying macroinvertebrates in our ponds and streams at camp. Participate in your favorite camp activities such as Geology, Boating, Survival, Wildlife, and much more, but some of the activities will have either a Hunter or Gatherer twist.
"My stepson came home yesterday covered in dirt from head to toe, and so happy about his week at camp. We thought his experience at Bryant Pond last year couldn't be beat, but somehow you pulled it off. Thanks for providing our son and others with meaningful education, amazing mentors, new perspectives, and of course, fun." -- Summer Camp Parent
