Summer Day Camp

(Our oldest camper) was unsure of what camp would be like and was reluctant to go. She has absolutely loved the environment! She adores her counselors and we believe attending your camp has had a major positive impact on her mental health. Her favorite piece of attending camp has been the friends she’s made. She keeps in touch with the other kids outside of camp. I believe the counselors assist with fostering positive interaction between the children. (Our younger camper) has enjoyed the outdoor activities such as swimming and archery/slingshot. It’s been great hearing both kids get in the car and talk about how fun their days were!

Lake Nixon helped my daughter find the courage to pass her swimming test…she was afraid to try as she couldn’t see the bottom of the lake. This event changed her overall outlook on new things she could try.

Our kids loved swimming, gaga ball, canoeing, paddle boarding, paddle boats, slingshots, and age appropriate crafts (like ripcord keychains for the older boys). Also, our sons really liked their counselors and lifeguards. It is a great example  for the younger kids to see so many smart, kind, helpful, enthusiastic young adults who enjoy working with the kids and keeping them safe.

Financial Assistance (“Camperships”)

It is very important to us that opportunities to enjoy recreation, education, and sanctuary in this beautiful place are financially accessible. For the summer of 2024 we will have limited funds available to help campers and families whose financial circumstances would otherwise prevent them from experiencing summer day camp.  If you are able, please help make the fun, friendships, and memories of Lake Nixon possible for more kiddos by making a donation here.

Please spread the word about this opportunity to make camp possible.

Can you help make camp possible and more accessible?
