New for 2019!

Welcome Campers and Parents!

A very special summer experience awaits you as Maplewood Country Day Camp celebrates its 55th season!

For the past 54 years, Maplewood has offered a nurturing environment where children feel comfortable participating in many rewarding activities.

A personal sense of success and achievement provides motivation to learn new skills and practice old ones, while also encouraging our campers to grow through positive social interaction.

As we approach our 55th year, we will continue the Maplewood tradition, expanding our programs and facilities to ensure that the 2019 camp season is our best ever.

Wacky Chad Is Back

To know him is to love him!  We are thrilled to welcome back camper favorite, Wacky Chad to celebrate our 55th summer.  

His award-winning pogo stick skills, funny jokes, and antics landed him not one, but two auditions on America's Got Talent, along with a performance at the Superbowl.

Maplewood can’t wait to share his gravity-defying moves, laugh out loud comedy, and everything in between with you next summer at camp. 

For those of you who haven’t witnessed a Wacky Chad performance, you are in for a treat.

Extra!  Extra!  Double Club Day
expanded to 3rd grade and above.

What’s better than a double scoop of ice cream?  A double serving of Club day!  In addition to the group bonding and fun that takes place for much of the day, we have always allowed campers in 1st grade and above to explore special activities and interests through Club Day. 

This summer will be no different.  In fact, we are expanding Double Club Day to include all campers in 3rd grade and above.  These older campers will now have two electives every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoon.  Club Day provides campers with a huge array of opportunities to mold their own summer camp experience. 

This translates to campers trying something new or perhaps selecting an activity that they really enjoy multiple days in a row.  Some of the more than 40 club day activities include LEGO Robotics, Nature/Barnyard, Puppet Making, YoYo, and Gardening

Disc Golf is a Club Day favorite!

Air Conditioned Gymnasium

Summer is a wonderful time to play outdoors, but it is always nice to cool off in our swimming pools and indoor air-conditioned facilities. Over the past twenty years, campers and staff have really enjoyed escaping the summer heat in our air-conditioned classrooms for gymnastics, dance, music, drama, art, chess, and academics. This month we are installing air conditioning in our gymnasium which will make the 90-degree temperatures during rock climbing, sports activities, indoor games and extended day a thing of the past.
