Mar 7, 2023

Sending your child to summer camp is a great way to help them grow and develop new skills, make new friends, and create lifelong memories. However, before deciding on the type of camp to enroll your camper in, it is important to understand the differences between Day Camp and Overnight Camp. At Twinlow Camp, we offer both types of camps, each with its unique benefits and experiences.

Day Camp at Twinlow Camp

Our Day Camp program at Twinlow Camp is designed for campers 1st grade through 5th grade who are looking for a fun and engaging summer experience. Our day campers participate in a range of activities, including: arts and crafts, swimming, sports, nature walks, and more. Day campers arrive at our facility each morning and are picked up in the afternoon, allowing parents to have their children home each evening.

One of the primary benefits of our Day Camp program is the convenience it provides for parents who may have work or other commitments during the day. Additionally, day campers have the opportunity to develop social skills and build relationships with other campers and staff, as well as experience the joy of participating in a variety of camp activities.

Overnight Camp at Twinlow Camp

Our Overnight Camp program is designed for children 1st grade through 12th grade who are ready for a more immersive and challenging summer experience. At Twinlow Camp, we offer a range of Overnight Camp options, including one-week sessions, as well as specialty camps that focus on specific activities or interests.

Overnight campers at Twinlow Camp have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities, including canoeing, hiking, bouldering, archery, water-sports, and more. Our overnight campers stay in cabins with other campers of the same age, and are supervised by experienced and trained counselors who are dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment.

One of the primary benefits of our Overnight Camp program is the opportunity for campers to develop independence, self-confidence, and resilience. Overnight campers learn valuable life skills such as teamwork, communication, problem-solving, and leadership, as well as form close bonds with other campers and staff that can last a lifetime.
