Camp Evergreen: Ages 4–13

Camp Evergreen (for ages 4-13) is Durham Academy Summer's fresh approach to a traditional day camp. Home to state-of-the-art facilities amongst more than 84 acres of trees and wide-open spaces, Camp Evergreen is a transformative, all-day experience filled with activities reminiscent of classic overnight camps, all while keeping campers close to home. 

Each day at Camp Evergreen features four key rotations — academics, wellness, art, and athletics — 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 "cabins" through the fun and fulfilling rotations each day.

We believe the experience of joining a cabin will build great community connections and relationships. 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! There are so many new friends to be made at DA Summer and we hope to see you at Camp Evergreen soon!
