Camps

Summer Camp Information

Come to Haw River State Park for summer fun and adventure! The Summit Environmental Education Staff at Haw River lead participants in many amazing park adventures. Each week has a theme on which programming will focus. The Day Camps are for children who will be rising 2nd to 5th graders. We offer Haw River Adventure Camp for 6th-8th graders. Our Grand Camps are for grandparents who would like to come to summer camp with a grandchild or two, or for children who would like to bring their grandparents to camp. These are our only residential camps.
 

Summer Day Camp Daily Schedule:

8:30am to 9:00am – Early arrivals
9:00am to 4:00pm – Programmed activities
4:00pm to 4:30pm – Extended hours
 

Participants will be asked to bring a bag lunch/water bottle each day. Water will be available to the students at lunch and for the breaks. Morning and afternoon snacks will be provided. Please be sure to inform us concerning any dietary needs, such as food allergies upon registration.
