OHIYESA DAY CAMP

Where each day comes to life
 

Day Camp is a great introduction to the benefits and activities of a Camp Ohiyesa experience in an action-packed day. For boys and girls grades K-8 there is no better way to spend a week participating in safe, fun, quality programs in a convenient location.

Our caring, responsible staff is trained in a variety of areas including child development, activity leadership, behavior management, sports, and swim instruction. In addition to the exciting activities and new friendships, breakfast and lunch are included daily. In the mornings, campers travel with their counselors and age group to a variety of activities that change each day. Each group’s schedule is designed for their age. In the afternoon, we offer specialty options when campers can choose which activity they’d like to try.

Day campers at Camp Ohiyesa become part of one of the camp’s four Legends: Jolee, Casper, Alastair, or Royale. Each Legend is named after a camper of the past. The youngest campers (entering grades K-2nd) become Jolee campers, then move on to Casper (3rd, 4th), then Alastair (5th, 6th), and finally become Royale Legend campers (7th, 8th). The different Legends will share some offerings but also experience things unique to the age group. For example, both Jolee campers and Royale campers will get a chance to zip line, but Jolee campers might play parachute games or party in the bounce house while Royale campers might take on team climbing tasks at the Alpine Tower.

Saddle Club

Saddle Club requires a strong dedication to horses and a willingness to learn new things every day. In return, Saddle Club will give you endless fun and adventure with our four-legged friends. Saddle Club Day Campers will first learn how to move safely around horses, lead horses from their stalls, mount and dismount properly: this initial orientation allows us to ride in the arena starting on the very first day of camp! Throughout the week Saddle Club members will learn to control their horses in a walk and a trot. Reversing direction, going around barrels and doing figure eights will all be a piece of cake by the end of the week. Various games on horseback will be part of the curriculum, both in the riding ring and out on the trails of our 300 acre property.

Junior Saddle Club (ages 8-10) is available during Sessions 1, 6, 7, 8 and 9.

Saddle Club (ages 10-14) is available during every Day Camp Session.
