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 (ages 3-5) experiences introductory activities and a slower paced schedule. Explorers (ages 6-7), Pathfinders (ages 8-9), and Adventurers (ages 10-12) choose their own activities throughout the week. Teen Trailblazers (ages 13-15) enjoy the summer through engaging and advanced camp activities and exciting off-camp trips every week.
Day campers select from a list of available activities each week. These could include canoeing, rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, sailing, arts & crafts, drama, songs and skits, survival skills, tie-dye, archery, nature art, sports, ga-ga, marksmanship, high ropes, music & more. Horseback riding is available each week for an additional fee.

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.
