Camp Evergreen: Ages 4–13

8:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m. (Before Care & After Care available)

Imagine the quintessential overnight camp experience — bonding with cabinmates, aiming for archery targets, gleefully slipping down waterslides, and strengthening creative and academic muscles — but enjoying the comfort of your own bed each night. That’s the beauty of Durham Academy Summer’s Camp Evergreen, an all-day camp experience for ages 4–13 here in the Bull City.

Campers make connections with new friends in their “cabin,” a close-knit group that explores Camp Evergreen’s cabin rotations together — art; sports & outdoors; sustainability & learning; and wellness — each morning. And then each afternoon, campers choose an area to take a deeper dive for the week — from technology to art studio — with similar-aged campers from other cabins.

These activities are grounded in Durham Academy’s mission to prepare children for moral, happy, productive lives. And they’re led by experienced faculty, with support from DA Upper Schoolers who serve as terrific role models for the younger campers. Most importantly, we have a ton of fun in the process!

Cabin Rotations

Members of each cabin attend camp meetings together, participate in rotations as a group, and enjoy lunch together. Campers explore each of the following areas with their cabinmates each week, even as Camp Evergreen's overall theme changes from week to week — keeping things fresh for repeat campers! Each day's schedule includes time for cabin rotations for 90 minutes each morning, plus 45 minutes after lunch. 

Afternoon Options

Campers choose a particular area to explore for the week during the daily Afternoon Options session. The 90 minutes dedicated to Afternoon Options each day allows for campers to take deep dives into their interests. In this session, campers will be grouped with similarly aged children — some from their own cabin, and some from other cabins. If your camper chooses the same option for multiple weeks, they'll have a fresh experience each time, as we have different programming planned for each week.
