Camp Koda

Registration for Summer 2020 will begin in February!

Koda is a co-ed camp for kids who have completed kindergarten to age 12 that is offered in Essex, Georgia, Underhill, and Waterbury. Recognizing the needs of working families, camps run daily from 7:30am to 6pm.

Camp Koda gets its name from the Sioux word for friendship and focuses on achievement, belonging, and relationships. Here at the Y, our qualified camp staff also knows the importance of developing the potential of all kids—and providing opportunities to build confidence and learn new skills.

Each week follows a theme and includes hands-on learning and plenty of time-honored favorites including arts and crafts, physical activities, games, swimming, field trips, music and drama, team-building activities – even special guests. While specific activities may differ from location to location, you can always be sure that your child is learning, playing, and growing in a fun, safe environment.

A Day in the Life at Camp Koda

A typical day at Camp Koda includes indoor and outdoor free play; a choice of sports, arts & crafts, or quiet activities; mini field trips; and special enrichment activities and curriculum extras (such as swimming).

Most of our sites also visit local pools or swimming holes daily. This may incur an additional daily fee to pay the facility usage fees; however, there will always be a non-swimming alternative.

Most sites require lunch and two snacks packed daily. You will receive notification if your location is able to participate in a free lunch program.
