Day Camp for Rising 1st-9th graders
At Camp Weaver we offer a fun filled day camp experience for campers who are rising 1st graders through 9th graders. Children are grouped by age and make the journey to each camp activity under the supervision of Camp Weaver counselors. Each day every camper will have the opportunity to participate in both land and water activities. Our day camp is a great opportunity for those campers who may be looking to take that first step towards summer resident camp, but may not quite be ready to stay overnight.
NUT FREE ZONE
We are a completely nut-free facility. Please be mindful of this policy and refrain from sending items that contain nuts to camp.
