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.
The Camp Daggett summer program develops a feeling of acceptance, respect and courage that campers can take home with them. Camping provides an environment which enables children to live, learn and develop skills that are useful at any age. Activities include:
- Group sports and games
- Sailing, swimming, canoeing and fishing
- Arts and crafts
- Nature study, hikes, camp fires and camp outs
- Adventure ropes courses
Appetites are satisfied with nutritious, family style meals served in beautiful Mac Hall, a picturesque log dining room overlooking Walloon Lake.
A full-time health director is on duty 24 hours a day.
Camp Daggett operates as a nonprofit, independent organization with no religious or governmental affiliations.
