Camp Koda


This summer, Camp Koda will run in the following communities: Essex, Georgia, and Underhill. Now more than ever, the health, safety, and well-being of campers and staff is our priority. Please know that strict adherence to state-mandated safety measures and best practice will be in place at all open Y camps. We look forward to caring for your children and to have them enjoy the company of friends, old and new!

Due to special protocols, including additional cleaning, Camp Koda will operate from 8:30 am to 4 pm.

Camp KODA is a co-ed camp that runs in 1-week sessions for campers who have completed kindergarten to age 12.

As noted, this year Camp Koda will take place is in Essex, Georgia, and Underhill. Camp Koda at Essex Elementary is for kids who have completed kindergarten to 2nd grade, Founder’s school is for kids who have completed 3rd-8th grade. The Harwood Unified School District has made the difficult decision that summer programs will not run in any of their schools. As such we will not be running Camp Koda in Waterbury this year, which used Thatcher Brook Primary School.

Camp Koda gets its name from the Sioux word for friendship and focuses on achievement, belonging, and relationships. Each week follows a theme and includes hands-on learning and plenty of time-honored favorites. 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.

Campers bring lunch and two healthy snacks each day unless notified that their site participates in a free lunch program.
