Charlotte Day Camp 

Charlotte Day Camp is an enriching camp environment that focuses on creating Growth, Learning, and Fun for every camper. We have operated in Charlotte since 2011. For 2017, the camp will be held at 1817 Central Ave in Plaza Midwood.

Every week at Charlotte Day Camp features three program track choices that campers can sign up for. The first is Cultural Explorers, a multicultural program where we explore a new country each week. The second is Project Challenge, where campers engage in a different project or challenge each week. Finally, Game Theory Camp is all about learning from strategy-based and imaginative board games.

Charlotte Day Camp is different from some other summer camp programs because we are built on a strong Outcomes Focus. We don't just put activities together and hope that the campers have a good time. There are three specific Program Outcomes that we design our camp to achieve for every camper: Growth, Learning, and Fun.

When we say Growth, we mean helping campers build positive, healthy, and productive dispositions. Learning is all about practicing skills that are critical to success in the 21st Century. And Fun is something we do all day every day at camp. Growth and Learning don't happen without Fun, and we don't consider camp a success unless we have achieved all three.

At Charlotte Day Camp, we take tremendous care in creating an effective learning environment where campers love to spend their summer days. Here's what you can expect from a week at Charlotte Day Camp: Safe, fun, productive environment for 5-15 year olds, three program track choices each week, camper outcomes: Growth, Learning, and Fun, convenience for parents, dedicated Counselor Role Models, an opportunity to make new friends and a fantastic summer experience Learn more at
