Kids Camp is completely focused on having endless, wholesome summer fun with activities that challenge their minds, explore their creativity, and let them just be a kid. The programming is customized for age-specific groups, with activities ranging from swimming to crafts to games. See below for additional details. 

Basin Harbor is pleased to offer children’s programming seven days per week during the summer months. Lunch will be provided with more information available at drop-off each day.  Advance sign up is required and Kids Camp sessions may be cancelled if no one has signed up at least 24 hours in advance.  For parents looking for additional supervision for your children during your stay, our concierge can assist with connecting you with a local sitter.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Younger children must be potty trained to participate in Kids Camp without a babysitter. 
  • Children may bridge into another age group to stay with a sibling at the parent’s discretion; programming is designed to meet the ability of the age group.
    • Children should come prepared with a swimsuit, change of clothes, water bottle, and anything else parents think they may need to be comfortable; towels and life jackets will be provided when swimming.
    • If there are not enough children signed up in one program, groups may be combined to improve the social aspect of camp for the kids.
    • As a rule of thumb, age groups will have a 25-child capacity per program, which reduces to 10 children per group during the last two weeks of August.
    • These numbers may change as we learn more about our staffing in the summer months.
    • Dietary restrictions will be accommodated for lunches. Please advise Ryan and Chef if you know a child will be attending Kids Club with specific dietary needs.
    • Kids will be provided with lunch during camp. Harbor Mates will eat at the Playhouse. Explorers will eat at various dining locations on property depending upon the day
  • At Basin Harbor, we believe in creating a memorable and enjoyable experience for every member of your family. In addition to Kids Camp, we also have babysitting services available. Learn more about our babysitting services.
