Camp Evergreen: Ages 11 and Under

Camp Evergreen is a fresh approach to a traditional day camp. It's a transformative all-day experience that keeps campers close to home but feeling like they're at an overnight camp — as they build independence and confidence in our spirited, caring community. Our all-inclusive experience emphasizes core life skills, academic lessons and play.

Each day will feature our signature centers — STEM, athletics, arts, outdoors, humanities, wellness, community engagement and entertainment — all while providing a fun, safe, and inclusive learning environment that will strengthen old friendships and foster new relationships.

Camp Evergreen is powered by a team comprising DA's top-notch faculty, alumni and current students. These individuals are highly trained to lead their "cabins" each day on an experiential adventure. Campers are able to request a "cabinmate" to pair up with during their time at Camp Evergreen — but so much of the fun of camp is making new friends, so don't worry if you don't have a cabinmate in mind!

Summit Series

The Summit Series includes a handful of deep-dive experiences that Camp Evergreen campers can choose to add on to their summer experience. Campers will have a full, well-rounded summer experience in Camp Evergreen alone — but we know that some campers may want to spend some of their time on a more concentrated focus in a specialty. These specialties will be updated in our registration platform in the coming months. We only offer a few, because the heart of our camp experience is with our all-day programming in Camp Evergreen. Registering for a Summit Series offering is optional; Camp Evergreen is plenty of fun, challenges and learning all by itself!

Check out the Summit Series offerings we have in the works for 2021!
