Summer 2021 Update

Davidson College Day Camp at the Lake will not be held in Summer 2021. After considering the risks, recommendations (CDC/College/American Camp Association), required modifications and their impact on the overall experience for our campers, the decision was made to push back the return of Lake Camp until Summer 2022. We understand and share your disappointment, but we are hopeful that future guidance will allow us to provide the Lake Camp experience that you’ve come to know in our 20+ summers.


The Davidson College leadership team is continuously monitoring, adapting to and planning for the circumstances created by the coronavirus pandemic. Visit the college's COVID-19 page to see the ongoing steps being taken on and off campus.

There is a $50 registration fee per camper, regardless of how many sessions that camper registers for. This fee is non-refundable, and paid only once per year.

Session fees are $350 per camper per week, with a discounted fee of $325 for each sibling/other camper in the same family.

Daily Schedule, Drop Off and Pick Up

Each day starts at the barn at 8:30 a.m. and ends at the barn at 4 p.m. Campers may be dropped off as early as 7:45 a.m. and must be picked up no later than 5 p.m.

As you enter the gated Lake Campus facility, follow the signs and keep to the right for drop off and pick up at the north end of the barn. If you wish to meet with staff, please park to the side as to avoid slowing traffic.

When picking up a camper, you must sign out at the gate. Early pickups should be coordinated with the camp office to ensure your camper is at the barn ready upon your arrival. Campers may only be picked up by parents/guardians listed during the registration process unless a written note is submitted to the camp office.
