About Day Camp

A place where kids can be kids

Day Camp at Camp Mason is a blast! Campers stay busy all day long in our beautiful outdoor setting. We know it’s important for kids to take a break from technology and the rigor of the school year to switch off and play together. That’s why we prepare schedules full of creative and original activities and games, mixed in with traditional favorites, for our campers to get stuck into. Each day is full of fun and every session is topped off with a weekly special themed event.

Day Camp is open to campers finishing Kindergarten through finishing 8th grade. The CIT program is open to campers finishing 9th grade.

Day Camp fills each summer. Most sessions have a waitlist by early spring so make sure you save your spot/s and avoid disappointment.


Operating Hours

Day Camp’s hours of operation are 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday.

Extended care is available before camp (7:30 AM drop-off) and after camp (5:30 PM pick-up) for an additional fee. A nutritious and varied breakfast is included with morning extended care. Families can opt to add-on freshly prepared lunches to their session and we publish the menu weekly during the summer.

Sessions are one-week in duration, with price discounts for multiple weeks. Financial aid is available.
