Summer Daze

Welcome to Summer Daze, Walsingham Academy’s action-packed, fun-filled, 8-week summer camp program open to the entire community. Our camps are geared for children entering grades pre-K (3 year olds) through 9th, and run from June 10 through Aug. 2.

This summer we are back with many of your favorite camps, as well as a few new and exciting ones. We have expanded our camps for the youngest campers, offering a full 8-week program for pre-K and Kindergarten ages. All our camps offer children an opportunity to play together, learn together, and relax together.

Camps are taught by Walsingham Academy staff, teachers, and alumni. Our handpicked staff will provide your camper with quality personal attention and valuable instruction. We are committed to providing your child with an exciting and memorable camp experience.

All of our camps have limited enrollment and we operate on a "first come, first served” basis, so sign up soon!
