MISSION In 2011 Avon Kids Camp was established as a nonprofit day camp for kids in Washington Township and the surrounding community for ages preschool to middle school. We believe that the camp experience is essential to every child’s growth with the positive impact of unstructured play, being physically active and in nature. We provide an inclusive space where campers can find their place in nature, explore, take risks, embrace their unique selves, grow relationships with peers and staff, learn new skills, build resilience and be inspired at camp.
All of our camps will keep your child engaged in a safe and fun environment that will have them wanting to come back for more. Camp offers a safe and positive environment where children gain confidence and learn new skills while enjoying fun-filled days outside exploring our beautiful park. Our camps provide opportunities for children to disconnect from technology and become more physically active.
Avon Kids’ Camp follows the American Camp Association’s 1:10 guideline for camper/counselor ratio.
Camp will consist of our Camp Director and Lead Counselor in addition to our qualified counselors who are all CPR and First Aid Certified to care for your child. To ensure proper supervision and age-appropriate activities, campers will be divided into groups by age. Campers are all together at several times throughout their day though for large group activities.
Time blocks are prepared prior to camp outlining games, crafts and activities that will take place on a daily basis. Every forty-five minutes to an hour of the day is identified with a specific activity geared to providing a positive camp experience. There is also plenty of time for free play!

Campers who are enrolled in full-day camps must bring a lunch and beverage each day. Lunch is offered during registration for an additional $4 campers only. As part of our commitment to health and wellness, we encourage campers to bring nutritious foods and beverages. We recommend all campers bring a reusable water bottle to camp each day. Refrigeration is not available for participants’ lunch, so please do not include any food that is subject to rapid deterioration or spoilage. If your camper has a severe food allergy, please contact us so we can provide accommodations for the food allergy if necessary. Please send food in sealed containers and clearly label your camper’s lunch with his/her name.
Please notify the Camp Director in writing at least 10 business days ahead of time if you plan on not having your camper attend the day(s)/week(s) for which they are currently enrolled. If you cancel your registration with less than 10 business days you will not receive a full refund. Anyone who cancels after the 10 day minimum has the option to receive a household credit to use towards future camp days with permission from the Camp Director. Requests for a camp credit must be made at least 24 hours before your child misses a registered day of camp.

Parents will be charged $1 per minute should late pickups continue. In the event of 5 or more late pickups the Camp Director can request removal from camp. Late pick up is after 6 pm for full day.
