Day Camp at Gretna Glen is a wonderful way for kids to explore nature, make new friends, and learn about Christ’s love! For children from 4 years old, through having completed 5th grade. Each week of day camp has a new theme & new lessons; so pick one, two, or more weeks and make Gretna Glen the foundation of your child’s summer. The Village serves as the day camp hub and includes group shelters, a large pavilion, campfire sites, restrooms, and plenty of room to run around. Day campers are dropped off at the Funk Center in the morning and taken back and forth from the village by a wagon ride. Day campers will be divided into family groups by age/grade so that activities for each group can be adjusted to be age appropriate. Day Campers must be fully potty trained and be able to use the restroom when needed without assistance. Diapers and Pull-Ups should not be needed to attend our program. We recognize campers may have an 'accident', and we will care for this type of situation with our health care staff.

A hot lunch, two snacks and plenty of fluids are prepared by our kitchen staff and served at the village. Our highly trained day camp staff spends the entire week leading a small group so that they can better understand the needs of each camper. Although each week of camp has a different theme and Bible lessons, there is a standard schedule that ensures all campers will experience the great things about camp like boating, swimming and fishing each week.
