Day Camp Programs & Schedule
Get ready for great adventures at camp! Camp Killoqua’s Day Camp program gives campers in grades K-8 the chance to try all kinds of fun activities, meet new friends and have fun at Killoqua’s 185-acre site.
Each session includes a variety of general and theme activities – no two weeks are the same! All campers experience games, songs, swimming, boating, outdoor cooking, crafts, and lots more.
Campers are divided into groups, each with a caring, trained counselor. The adult-to-camper ratio is 1:10. Campers bring a sack lunch; a daily snack is provided.

Killoqua strives to include all youth in camp programs. Campers ages 7-14 with mild to moderate developmental disabilities may be mainstreamed in day camp programs. Be sure to indicate the inclusion program on your registration form, and please contact us prior to registering to discuss your needs. We may be unable to accommodate campers with special needs if they are not registered through this program. All campers will be evaluated to determine that this program is appropriate for them and that they will benefit from participating. If we are unable to meet your needs, we are happy to provide referrals to other camps. Campers must be attending a public school and be able to perform self-help skills: feeding, dressing, toileting and grooming.
