Bearnstow offers Day Camp for children of school age for one, two-week session, weekdays: June 30July 4 and July 7July 11; 9:30 a.m.5:00 p.m. Early drop-off and late pickup may be individually arranged. Children should be sufficiently mature to participate in a full day of activities. During these two weeks of Day Camp we open registration to all past campers who wish to stay at camp with their children so that they may share the Bearnstow camping experience.
Swim gear, sturdy shoes, long and short pants, sweatshirts, and rain gear are strongly recommended; these items may be kept at camp. We supply towels, helmets (for riding), and have some PFDs (personal safety devices, life preservers). If the camper has a PFD, it would be good to bring it. The program varies daily, starts with chores (help with animals, cooking, simple maintenance) and includes swimming, horseback riding, campcraft, nature, the arts, and free play. For further information, contact Bearnstow Administration.
