Camp Susque is proud to present our very first Day Camp program. Day campers will experience many of the activities and experiences found in our overnight camps but still be able to sleep in their own bed at night! Campers entering 2nd through 5th grade are eligible for this new program.
Campers will spend most of their time at our Day Camp campus just outside of Williamsport and travel to Camp Susque for various activities in the afternoon. Activities include:
- Pool time
- Nature Class
- Daily Bible Studies
- Field Trips to Susque's educational partners
- Climbing Wall and Ropes Course
- Nature Hikes
In 2018, four sessions of Day Camp are available at two locations. The first two sessions are on the West End of Williamsport at Omega Presbyterian Church on Lycoming Creek Road. The second two sections are on the East End of Montoursville at Lycoming Valley Baptist Church. All sessions are Monday-Friday from 9:00AM to 4PM. Parents are invited to an evening program and cookout on Thursday evenings. Day Camp sessions are co-ed and campers are cared for by our compassionate and well-trained staff. Camp Susque has 70 years of experience running high-quality camps that provide great opportunities for personal and spiritual growth. Camp Susque is held to the highest standards in camping by the American Camp Association and fulfills more than 300 separate standards required by ACA.
