Newman Summer Day Camp!

“The staff is fabulous; they are highly engaged and enjoy themselves as much as the kids. The counselors and kids have a true camp, family relationship.”

+ Activities

Newman Summer Day Camp is made up of four distinct programs. Each program is tailored to provide children with age-appropriate activities, structure and support. Campers will be grouped by grade level but will interact with children of other ages throughout the day.

Rising Pre-K & Kindergartners - SOLD OUT

We’re all about play! With a range of centers designed by Newman primary teachers, this program appeals to children of all interests. We are architects, mud workers, sculptors, swimmers, artists, athletes and more. Our low camper-to-counselor ratio ensures that all children receive a high level of attention throughout the day.

Rising 1st & 2nd Graders - SOLD OUT

A little choice – a little structure. Campers in this program enjoy the freedom to choose from a variety of electives three times a day. In addition, campers participate in instructional swim or another physical activity at least once a day.

Rising 3rd - 6th Graders - SPACE AVAILABLE

This program is all about choice! Every day is set up so that a child may design his or her own camp experience. This level of customization allows Camp to meet the interests of the athlete, the artist, the scientist, and the child who wants to try it all.

Rising 7th & 8th Graders - SOLD OUT

Artists, engineers, filmmakers. . . they have it all: creativity, excitement, and the chance to do work that matters. During Newman Summer Day Camp’s apprenticeship program, 7th and 8th Graders have the opportunity to try their hands at these professions as well! Each week, campers will learn from professionals, head out into the community, and create their own masterpieces. These week-long intensives are specially designed just for 7th and 8th Graders. Independent, exciting, and hands-on, they take Day Camp to a whole new level!

Swimming at Day Camp

A detailed description of our swim program can be viewed by clicking here.

Newman Summer Day Camp offers developmentally appropriate swim instruction to all campers at no additional cost. Nu Wave Swim Club oversees all swim activities at Camp. Lifeguard certified instructors supervise the pool at all times. All campers who are signed up to swim will first take a swimming test to determine skill level. Life vests will be worn by campers not yet ready to swim on their own.

Daily Instructional Swim

Campers participating in Instructional Swim are in the pool five days a week. Each small class consists of 15-20 minutes of individualized guided skills practice followed by free swim.

Optional Free Swim

Campers signed up for Optional Free Swim may choose to participate daily in free swim or organized pool games. An initial swim test is given at the start of the session to assess each child’s ability to safely swim unassisted in this setting.

No Swim

Campers who are not signed up to swim will participate in other fun activities.

In addition to swimming, outdoor water play is offered to all campers on a regular basis.
