Summer Day Camp: Camp Oconee

Summer Day Camp: Camp Oconee

CAMP OCONEE

A PLACE TO LEARN, UNPLUG AND GROW

We believe in each child and their individual growth. It is our mission to focus on three areas of development: friendship, accomplishment and belonging. It is important to us that all campers have the chance to experience our core values: caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith.

  • The Foothills Area YMCA is offering camp at two locations, one in Seneca, SC (South Cove) and one in Walhalla, SC (old Walhalla Middle School).
  • Any child between the ages of 4 years old and 12 years old can register for day camp.
  • Any teen between the ages of 13-15 years old can register for the Counselor-In-training (CIT) Program.
  • Our summer sessions will begin the week of June 3rd and our last session will be the week of July 22nd with the last day being July 26th.
  • Daily drop off starts at 7:30 am and ends at 9:00 am and daily pick up starts at 4:00 pm and all campers must be picked up by 5:30 pm.
  • Activities this summer include: themed arts and crafts, small group games, skits, outdoor field games, swim times, in-house community service projects, small field trips (in house and out), and more. Every week a newsletter will be sent out that gives an idea of what will be happening each day of camp.
  • Breakfast and Lunch will be served (provided by the School District of Oconee County).
  • SDOC will NOT provide breakfast/lunch the week of July 1-5. Participants attending during this week will need to bring a breakfast (if not eating at home) and a lunch.
  • We will NOT have Summer Camp on the July 4th holiday, but will have camp every other day that week.
  • T-Shirts are not guaranteed if your child is registered after May 3, 2024.
