Day Camp

The Buffalo Canoe Club day camp offers a variety of fun summer activities for children ages four to twelve. The emphasis is on outdoor play and fun. When inclement weather keeps us indoors, we have arts and crafts as well as indoor games to keep our campers busy. Each week has a different fun theme. In addition, the following special activities are offered weekly: sailing (introduction to sailing in our Wet Feet program, taught in our Vanguard Pram), tennis, swimming and water activities such as tubing. (Please note all special activities are subject to change based on weather, equipment availability and enrollment and are not guaranteed).
