At Namanu Day Camp, we know it’s important to keep children’s minds sharp over the summer so they can continue to thrive upon their return to school.

Our Day Camp’s day-to-day activities engage youth in hands-on learning while keeping all the fun and silliness you’ve come to expect from our traditional summer camp. Each week has its own unique theme (like zoology, cooking science, or architecture).

Namanu Day Camp in the City is open to youth entering K to 5th grade, Fall 2018. 

A week of Namanu Day Camp includes:

  • Low camper to counselor ratio for individualized attention: K-1st grade (6:1), 2nd -3rd grades (7:1), 4th-5th grades (10:1).
  • One full-day field trip of outdoor exploration and education.
  • 30 minutes of literacy activities four days a week.
  • Developmentally-appropriate thematic activities, such as cooking projects, science experiments, and arts & crafts that keep young minds growing and learning in the summer.
  • Theme-specific small group field trips and/or special guests.
  • Traditional camp games, sports, and songs.
  • Two healthy snacks per day.
  • Namanu Day Camp in the City T-Shirt (one per camper per session).
  • 2017 EVERY CAMPER is invited to join us for our morning and evening Extended Care!
