Camp Speers is the premier day camp for Pike County. Day camp programs offer children from Pre-K to tenth grade the opportunity to experience the exciting Camp Speers programs. Day campers select from a variety of age-appropriate activities to create a fun schedule within their camp group. The Kinder-Kamp group (pre-K – kindergarten) experiences introductory activities and a slower paced schedule. Explorers (grades 1 – 2), Pathfinders (grades 3 – 4), and Adventurers (grades 5 – 6) choose their own activities throughout the week. Teen Trailblazers enjoy the summer through engaging and advanced camp activities and exciting off-camp trips every week.
Day campers select from activities such as canoeing, sailing, rock climbing, horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, arts & crafts, drama, songs and skits, survival skills, tie-dye, archery, nature art, sports, ga-ga, marksmanship, high ropes, music, & more.
Themes and Special Events
Special events and themes are a huge part of Camp Speers’ traditions. On special event days, camper groups work together to assemble a team of super heroes (counselors) or follow a secret map to find gold treasure. Session themes range from popular Disney and Pixar movies to our annual Red, White and Blue week, to celebrate the Fourth of July.
