DAY CAMPS

Best summer ever.

REGISTER NOW

Tanadoona is the perfect place for children to spend their summer. We are passionate about getting kids outside and creating a new community that they wouldn’t experience anywhere else. Here you can be yourself, learn alongside friends and caring adults, and have fun in the outdoors!

Each week of Day Camp is filled with a wide range of outdoor and nature-based activities that build character, ignite wonder and curiosity, and fill the woods with laughter. Zig-zag across Lake Minnewashta by canoe or kayak, take aim during archery in the woods, express your creative side through a variety of arts, become an outdoor survivalist and gather ’round the campfire. Adventure awaits at Tanadoona!

AGES: 5-14

  • Tanadoona Day Camp offers campers the full range of camp activities.
  • Premium Day Camps, where campers take a deeper look at one specific topic or activity and possibly turn a spark of interest into a full-fledged passion!

Plus, with easy check-in/out, Day Camp is convenient for parents and kids!

CHECK-IN/OUT SCHEDULE:

  • Check-in: Monday – Friday 7:45-8:30am
  • Check-out: Monday – Thursday 4:30-5:15pm & Friday 1-2pm
  • Closing Ceremony: at this point we are NOT holding our traditional Friday Closing Ceremony; should COVID-19 guidelines allow we will add it back to the schedule and notify all registered families.

Weekly themes create a fun, creative, and silly atmosphere showing up in all-camp games and activities.

Campers are encouraged to dress-up on Wednesdays for the weekly theme – have fun!
