Hale Day Camp
Hale Day Camp (HDC) offers a wide variety of summer camp experiences. From our Traditional Camps to our Outdoor Adventure and Mountain Biking Camps to our Leaders in Training (LIT) program for teens, we deliver a summer of fun for campers aged four and up! Whether your camper joins us for the entire season or just a few sessions, we’ll fill their days with adventure and have them home in time for dinner.
We believe in the power of traditional camp activities in the great outdoors. Situated in a remote corner of Hale’s 1,137 acres, our private campus features its own pond, lodge, athletic fields, and archery range where campers swim, hike, canoe, fish, learn arts and crafts, and more. HDC offers a safe place for campers to explore, make friends, and create memories that last a lifetime.
Hale Day Camp is proudly accredited by the ACA. Learn why that’s important.
