Camp Cassey has voluntarily submitted to this independent appraisal done by camp experts and has earned this mark of distinction.


Traditional Day Camp

With themes like Crazy Hats, Pick an Era and Super Heroes, every camp week is fun-filled and action-packed. Campers (K-8th grade) will experience a variety of activities including arts and crafts, environmental education, literacy education, team building activities, field trips, character development, outdoor games, swimming and more!

Specialty Camp

Something for everyone! Specialty camps are for campers 2nd – 7th grade and include a variety of themes from animals to Minecraft. Meet new friends with the same interests while learning new skills and having fun.

Youth Sports Camp

Want to try a new sport? Sports camp teaches children the basic skills needed to succeed in each area of the sport they choose. Campers will learn the fundamentals of the game along with various positions, rules, and regulations.

Leader In Training

Our Leader in Training (LIT) program designed just for teens completing 8th & 9th grade. LIT participants will learn teamwork oriented leadership through working together on a variety of workshops, and volunteer projects while gaining hands-on leadership experience. We understand summer cannot be all work and no play so our LIT teens will still go on weekly field trips.
