HUNTER MILL COUNTRY DAY SCHOOL

SUMMER CAMPS 2021

At Hunter Mill Country Day School, we believe a Summer Camp experience should be fun, adventurous and exciting for preschoolers and school-age kids alike.  HMCDS holds weekly theme-based Summer camps where children can be children - exploring, investigating and challenging themselves at their own pace while building new friendships and enjoying the camaraderie of old ones.  Children spend considerable time in the great outdoors on our 5 acre campus, visiting our barn animals, and engaging in a variety of activities such as sports games, water play, swimming at Oakmarr Rec Ctr., local field trips, creative arts, cooking projects, and much more.  Nutritious snacks and a freshly prepared hot lunch are always included for both  half-day and full-day campers!
