Camp Evergreen: Ages 4–13

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 — STEAM, 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 community leaders, DA's top-notch faculty, alumni and current students. These individuals are trained to lead their "cabin" groups through morning rotations and afternoon enrichments each day. Campers are able to pick their cabin and 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!

Our goal is to keep repeat campers in the same cabin all summer long. We believe this experience will build community connection and relationships.
