Day Camp is the heart of Camp Gateway. Our program is designed for children entering kindergarten through 6th grade. We keep our camper-to-counselor ratios low, grouping campers by the grades they are entering in the fall. Campers spend the majority of their days in these small groups but we provide frequent opportunities for the whole camp to come together in projects and activities. Childrens’ days are filled with games, sports, cooking projects and arts and crafts. Each of our eight weeks is built around an exciting theme; “Treasure Island”, “Decades”, “Space” and “Fantasy” have been popular themes in the past.
Full Day Camp (9am to 4pm) $240/week
Morning Camp (9am to 12:15pm) $130/week
