Full and Half Day Programs
Each summer since 1946, the stunning campus and facilities of St. John's Prep have been available to youngsters for eight one-week sessions. A nonsectarian camp for boys and girls ages 5 to 12, Camp Christopher represents the very finest in day camping.
Our goal is to provide a variety of activities in an enjoyable atmosphere. We strive to offer experiences that provide campers with the chance to learn new skills or master established ones. Our staff believes that a positive camp experience fosters self-confidence and continued development.
The Full-Day Option runs from 9 AM - 4 PM and offers a full range of athletics and crafts, with particular emphasis on swimming. Each camper participates in two swim sessions each day. The pool is staffed by Red Cross certified instructors in water instruction and first aid.
