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.

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.

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