Milton Collins Day Camp welcomes all faiths to the “most fun under the sun”!  Our core programming for Kindergarten through 9th grade runs from 9:00 until 3:30 each day.  During that time, the campers will be able to participate in specialty programs including tennis lessons, sports instruction, music, drama, STEM, and art activities.  In addition, all campers receive daily swim lessons with highly qualified instructors.  The age specific groups will also be allowed to choose between a wide range of activities throughout the week.  Campers are given a morning and afternoon snack each day.  In addition, a pizza lunch is provided on Fridays.  Extended care is also available beginning at 7:30 each morning and until 6:00 each afternoon. 


At MCDC, we maintain some of the lowest staff to camper ratios around, and we believe that is a huge benefit to our program. Our counselors are truly the best around and will ensure your camper has a wonderful experience.
