The Hun School of Princeton Day Camp has a simple philosophy: to provide a camp experience that is fun and safe, while reinforcing kindness, respect, getting along with others, and playing fair.
This is what makes The Hun School Day Camp special. The morning includes two activity sessions, during which campers participate in activities such as archery, golf, soccer, kickball, tennis baseball, pillow polo, rambo, commando, fishing, nature walks, arts and crafts, and other activities and games. One of the favorite camp projects is t-shirt tie-dying. Our air-conditioned Landis Fine Arts Building is used for various art projects. Following lunch, campers are provided with swim instruction and recreational swim time. Each afternoon, there is time for an additional activity period. Each camp week can accommodate up to 140 campers. The camper-counselor ratio is approximately twelve campers for every adult counselor. Campers are divided into groups according to age and gender. Campers can sign up for two to five weeks. Our most popular event is the annual talent show and sleepover Thursday, August 1st. The early sign up discount for camp expires March 1st. No camp on July 4th.
Campers benefit from experienced adult counselors, spirited junior counselors, and a nurturing community environment where campers choose their own group activities. Full and half-day options are available. The Junior Counselor in Training program (J.C.I.T) for 13-year old boys and girls returns for its second year. This program will provide traditional camp activities and new junior counselor level responsibilities that include mentoring younger campers and facilitating group activities. There will be a weekly off-site trip and a culminating group community service project designed and implemented by the group. Camp hours are 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with before-camp care and after-camp care available. Lunch is included.
