Camp Koda

SPECIAL NOTE:  We want to say THANK YOU to our Camp Koda staff and the families we served in Underhill, Georgia, and Essex this past summer. We look forward to being back stronger than ever for the summer of 2021.

KODA runs in 1-week sessions for campers who have completed kindergarten to age 12.

Camp Koda is the Y’s co-ed summer day camp and traditionally runs in Essex, Georgia, Waterbury, 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.

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.
