Every Day Away is a summer day camp concept, brought to you by 50-year summer camp experts, Kidcam Camps. Now in its 6th summer, campers age 8-14 will not stay put, but get off campus every day as they enjoy new destinations & surprising excursions. We don’t just hit the road, we get out of town!
 

Every Day Away (EDA) offers a unique day camp experience each week allowing our campers the opportunity to get out and about each day. They make amazing memories with new friends, enjoy times with old friends who return year after year or join them from school circles. EDA allows them to "get out of their daily bubble”, all while providing a feeling of some new-found independence with safe adventures and stimulation that tests their strengths, and even helps them overcome some fears.

 

EDA Campers must be age 8 at the start of camp, and should be a solid swimmer in order to attend all of the swimming/water park adventures.
