“Freedom does not come for free. It has to be fought for and conquered. On this 4th of July may your hearts be filled with love for your nation, compassion for your fellow-Americans and the determination to work hard to make this country better than it already is. May you have a lovely 4th of July.” Author Unknown

TRADITIONAL DAY CAMP
Camp Greenwood’s traditional day camp fosters children’s emotional, social, physical and creative growth through a range of interactive activities all while building relationships with counselors and staff who serve as role models every day. Camp Greenwood provides youth ages 5-12 with supervised activities that teach core values, conflict resolution and leadership skills. Campers have fun while making new friends, building self-confidence through achievements, gaining a sense of belonging and teamwork. Camp typically includes a choice of activities, crafts, songs, reading, swimming, physical activity and field trips. In addition, your camper will experience archery, hiking, climbing and other fun activities. Some activities require that specific waivers be completed prior to camper participation. All camp activities are age appropriate. The campers are placed into their respective age groups and taken through activities that are geared for their developmental level.
Develop a greater passion for the things you love, or try out something new at one of our specialty camps! Specialty Camps are offered throughout the summer. They are half day camps but campers can choose to stay all day for an additional fee. Camps include fishing, flag football, outdoor adventure, horseback riding, survivor, and cheerleading. This year we are also offering a new camp for homeschool students.
