YMCA of Greater Bergen County

Kahagon Day Camp - Entering Grades K-1

Day Camp Kahagon is designed to specifically meet the needs of our youngest campers where campers play constructively, learn cooperatively, and make friends. Our goal is to expand children’s horizons by providing developmentally appropriate, creative and fun play experiences.

Each day, campers have the opportunity for socialization through activities that foster sharing and cooperation.  Camp groups have their own schedule to meet the emotional and physical needs of our campers.

College-age counselors lead the campers through an action-packed day in nature activities, sports & games, arts & crafts, and swim lessons.  Our certified lifeguards, trained in water safety, provide the swim lessons in a protected area that is 4-feet deep, end-to-end.

Campers rotate through age-appropriate activities providing a different experience each day!  Our program will help your child adjust to new environments and have a great sense of self.

The low staff-to-counselor ratio of 1:6 offers personal interaction and assistance to each camper.  Camp Kahagon provides a supervised, positive environment with opportunities for socialization through activities that foster sharing and cooperation.
