Camp Daggett offers eight one-week coed camping sessions starting in mid-June and ending in mid-August. Campers range in age from 7 through 14 years. They are housed in rustic cabins designed for 10 campers and two staff members. The program answers a child's search for adventure in an environment that is upbeat and wholesome.

Camp Daggett Scholarships
The Board of Trustees, Camp Daggett's governing body, maintains a scholarship fund to cover fees for children from financially challenged families. Places are also reserved for children with special needs who are mainstreamed into various camp activities.
Please do not hesitate to call if you need assistance. There are eligibility requirements.
Camp Daggett Summer Camp Reminders
Parents, please take notice:
We have recently paved the main road through camp to help prevent soil erosion. Because of this, we have lost 15 parking spots in the main camp area. Please be prepared for possible delays, and please note that we may have to ask some parents to park in the upper parking lot. A shuttle service will be provided though if needed. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we try to protect camp grounds for future generations.
Camper Arrival is Sunday 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Our gates will open at exactly 3:00 p.m. so you can then begin the camper registration process. Our camp staff will help guide you to a parking spot at that time. If weather allows, the camper registration process will start at our recreation field; in the case of rain or other inclement weather, the registration process will begin in our recreation building. (If your child is participating in one of the wilderness adventure programs, he or she would register in our adventure center.)

Packing for Summer Camp
Parents & Guardians: Please assist your camper(s) when packing for camp. We rely on your supervision to ensure the appropriate items and clothing articles are selected. Please label everything!
An important reminder: As part of the registration process, parents checking in medications for their child now meet directly in the health cabin with the Camp Health Officer (CHO) to discuss camper's needs and to hand in the medications. All medications must now be brought to camp in their original bottles or packages!
“This was Alayna’s first year at camp. She went not knowing anyone and was very nervous. She came home not being able to stop talking about how fantastic it was. We could not get a word in! She was singing and non-stop talking about how wonderful camp was and how she can’t wait ‘til next year! Thank you so much to all the staff who made her week impossible to ever forget!”
“Camp Daggett and all the staff means the world to Jillian! Thank you for giving my child something that I could not – a sense of belonging, a home away from home, and being part of the ‘other fellow first.’”
“The first words out of both Ben and Jane upon pick-up were ‘We have to come back next year!’ They both had the quintessential and extraordinarily positive summer camp experience which we as parents had hoped for our children. Now, if we could just get them to stop singing ‘Awkward Turtle,’ the summer would be perfect!”
