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 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!

Afternoon Enrichments

Afternoon Enrichments provide our campers a deeper dive with a concentrated focus that lasts all week long in the afternoons. Cabins will be together until their rotation after lunch where they will go to their afternoon option. If a camper is attending a Summit that week in the morning, they can add on with Aftercare and join the Afternoon Enrichment.
