The Columbus Club Summer Day Camp began in 1999 with about 60 campers. Throughout the years the camp has grown exponentially. We have about 500 campers (350 families) ranging in school level from rising K through rising 8th grade that join our staff for fun and activities throughout the summer.
Even though there are many campers that come to our camp we still have the feeling of being small. Each counselor has the chance to get to know each of their campers and help encourage them to be the best they can be.
Each session of our camp has room for 135 campers. Each camper is placed in a group of his or her own age which is led by at least one Lead Counselor and one Junior Counselor. It is the goal of the counselor to get to know each of their 18-22 campers during the session.
The Columbus Club Summer Day Camp prides itself on the relationship that it builds with the campers as well as staff members. It is important to us to create a safe and welcoming environment for our campers and their families.
The Columbus Club Summer Camp staff is looking forward to bringing a well-rounded program to our campers each summer. We will be coaching campers and encouraging them to be the best young people they can possibly be. Whether it is playing fairly during a group game, feeling confident in creating a masterpiece in arts and crafts, taking turns on the diving board, learning to swim independently, or helping a younger camper learn a new skill, we will be accomplishing it together. We believe in team work and in the value of a quality summer program. Along with a caring staff, this combination will create an environment where everyone can thrive.
