Belmont Day Camp provides well-rounded, fun-filled, and exciting summer adventures with many opportunities for exploration and play. We strive to be a thoughtful and reflective community of role models that creates a loving and supportive environment in which children:
- grow safely as individuals
- take risks and participate
- engage in meaningful connections with others
- foster both individual and group learning discoveries
- have fun and create lasting memories
We welcome boys and girls, aged three to fifteen years, who are eager to participate in a wide variety of activities. Campers are placed in coed groups by entering grade in the coming fall. Groups range in size from 10 to 18 depending on the age of the children and the session. Groups fall into one of four categories:
- Ramblers (entering pre-school to entering kindergarten groups)
- Voyagers (entering grades 1 to 3 groups)
- Pioneers (entering grades 4 to 7 groups)
- Future Leaders (entering grades 8 and 9 – counselor-in-training program by application and interview only)
These categories dictate which activity specialists groups see and how their daily schedule is structured. As the age of the group increases, so does the amount of choice offered to campers in the activities they pursue. All groups take part in a swim lesson in the morning and enjoy a free swim period in the afternoon daily. Visit the pages for each group to see a sample schedule and list of activities.
Each summer, camp has a theme that spans the entire summer and provides consistency and connection between sessions. The 2016 theme was Wheels, Wings, and Other Things. The theme is incorporated into morning and closing meetings, as well as activities throughout the day.
In addition to the theme, special events take place each session as a way to build community and have fun! Examples of special events have included: All American BBQ, Color Games, Olympics, Carnival, Lambies (Talent Show), and Hot Halloween.
We offer one- and two-week sessions from June 26 to August 18.
