Senior and Tween Program

Rallies - Time to gather together as an entire camp. Celebrate birthdays, win prizes, dance, sing and show your spirit!

Swimming - Cactus Day Camp has two pools on campus: 10ft and 4ft deep.  Campers swim every day and will have the option to swim a second time for Camper's Choice.  The pools are staffed with certified lifeguards employed by Cactus Day Camp and counselors accompany their campers to the pool. 

Water Activities - Campers need to bring a bathing suit and towel to camp everyday. We have sprinklers and water slides hooked up each day. We also have lots of water games throughout the sessions like bucket brigades, water balloons, slip-n-slides and more to cool your child off.

Rock Climbing - Cactus Day Camp rents a rock climbing wall two days a week from an independent contractor.  Camp groups will be assigned rock climbing once a week. 

Camper’s Choice - In addition to regular scheduled group activities, campers entering Kindergarten and up have a chance to choose their favorite activities again during Camper’s Choice.

Lunches - Campers are required to bring a lunch and drink each day. Lunches are collected each morning and kept cool until lunchtime. On Fridays, Cactus Day Camp will provide lunch. Campers choose from a hotdog or bagel. All campers receive water and pretzels/chips as well.  There is an optional lunch program where parents can order lunch online for their child(ren) to be delivered to camp on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and/or Thursdays.  For more information about this optional lunch program, click HERE.

Chill Zone -This is a structured relaxation time for campers to just chill and hang with their group playing games and socializing.

Overnights - An overnight experience is an option to campers entering 1st grade and older during select sessions at an additional fee.

Guests & Special Events - Special guests and performers such as magicians, puppeteers, animal trainers, and DJs, visit camp. This gives campers an opportunity to watch, learn and participate in additional activities.

Special Days - Each Friday, we culminate the fun with an exciting theme and special schedule. Special days such as Carnival, Olympics, Color Day, and Wacky Water Day are highlights for campers and a time when spirit and enthusiasm are at an all time high!

Tween Camper Field Trips:  In addition to the regular program at camp, Tween Campers go on weekly outings each Wednesday.  Our program director will lead counselors and campers on excusions to the bowling alley, movies, water park, ice rink and other fun places.  Lunch will be provided on all field trips.
