PETOSKEY: Registration opens for Camp Daggett summer camp on Wednesday, January 6, 2016. Applications for 2016 summer camp will be mailed out to 2015 summer campers on January 4 and will be available in local schools and chambers of commerce on January 7, 2016.  Applications will be available to download from our website on January 8, 2016. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications must be downloaded, printed and mailed to Camp Daggett.

Every year, over 1,000 children ages 7 to 14 get the opportunity to spend a week at Camp Daggett. They experience the beauty of the natural environment that the camp provides, make new friends, try new things and have loads of fun. The summer program also develops a feeling of acceptance, respect and independence that campers take home with them. Camping provides a setting in which children can live, learn, and develop skills that are useful throughout their lives.

Activities include group sports and games, sailing, swimming, canoeing and fishing, arts and crafts, nature study, hikes, adventure ropes courses and team building activities, archery, campfires and camp-outs. The program answers a child’s search for adventure in an environment that is upbeat and wholesome. Appetites are satisfied with nourishing, family style meals served in beautiful Mac Hall, a picturesque log dining room overlooking Walloon Lake.

Camp Daggett offers eight one-week co-ed camping sessions starting June 19 and ending August 13, 2016.  Cost is $400 for children who attend schools in the Charlevoix and Emmet Intermediate School District during the 2015-2016 school year and have year-round residence in Charlevoix or Emmet County. Scholarships are available to campers who need financial assistance. In addition, the Camp Daggett Board of Trustees has approved a 10% discount to families that have three or more children attending summer camp in 2016.

Camp Daggett also offers three Wilderness Adventure Trips for ages 13 to 15: the Canoer on the Platte, Betsie and Crystal Rivers, June 26 to July 2; the Pathfinder, North Manitou Island, July 24 to 30; and the Explorer at Pictured Rocks, August 7 to 13.

Get your child started on the meaningful and memorable experience of a lifetime.
