Our Department has hosted Camp Big Red for the past 24 years. It is a day camp for children between the ages of 6 to 12 years old. Our camp allows campers to experience positive group interactions in a safe and fun environment.

We give campers the opportunity to develop teamwork skills, experience fun adventures, and create new lasting friendships through arts & crafts, daily recreational activities, special events, sports, as well as field trips.

The Camp Big Red staff is a high-energy, dedicated team, certified in Adult & Child CPR/AED and First Aid. Our philosophy is that all activities must be SAFE, FUN, & FAIR. Campers get the care they deserve with our 8-to-1 camper-to-staff ratio. Our staff is under the direction of Sean Sherwood, Camp Director. COME JOIN THE FUN!!!

Camp sessions are Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 4:30pm with organized activities starting at 9:00am. Organized activities end at 3:30pm. Campers should be dropped off at the blue basketball courts in the Preston Center. Campers may arrive as early as 7:30am and should be picked up no later than 4:30pm. Late fees will be charged for campers picked up after 4:30pm.
