There is a non-refundable $25 deposit to register for all Day Camps.

McCallie Day Camp is designed to give boys knowledgeable skills in various activities while stressing the importance of character, teamwork, and cooperation.

  • Boys are assigned to teams according to age and are supervised by hand-selected counselors and adults at all times.
  • Two swim periods in the McCallie “Lake” are included in each day’s fun activities.
  • A nutritious lunch in the McCallie Dining Hall, a camp T-shirt, early drop-off and late pick-up until 5pm, are included at no extra cost.

McCallie Day Camp is not “day care.” Emphasis is placed on participation, sportsmanship, and cooperation. Our main goal is for your son to have a good, wholesome, and fun experience during his time at McCallie.

Day Camp Activities include:  Basketball, Kickball, Game Room, Relays & Games, Soccer, Swimming 2x per day, Gladiator Ball, Slip-n-slide, and Battleball.  Swim Meet and Track Meet on alternate weeks..

Sessions 2, 4, & 6: Swim Meet on Thursday, Track Meet on Friday – parents are invited!  Times will be announced during the session.

Camp headquarters this summer will be in Davenport Gym. Enter campus at Dodds and Bailey, go straight up the hill past the McCallie Lake and McCallie Middle School, turn left onto Burkett-Miller Drive – the entrance to Davenport Gym will be on your left – drop-off & pick-up may be done without leaving your car; if you would like to park and come inside, parking is available in the Sports & Activity Center lot, immediately to the left as you enter campus.

We will have someone to direct you as you enter and leave campus on the first Monday of each session. Camp begins at 9:00 AM; however, there will be Day Camp staff on duty at 8:00 AM for early drop off. Camp ends at 3:30 PM. You can pick up your camper at Davenport Gym at the end of camp.

There will be staff on duty in the McCallie Game Room until 5:00 PM for late pick up for no extra charge. For those picking up after 5:00 PM, there is a charge of $25 per day.

Please send a towel and swim suit – campers will swim each day in the McCallie “Lake”.

We advise you to send an extra pair of shorts, socks, and shirt in case of rain; we play in the rain.  Please label all belongings.

Please apply sunscreen to your camper every morning and remind him to apply sunscreen throughout the day to prevent sunburn.

*Please do not bring water bottles.
