Camp Wing Day Camp is an inclusive community. It is our goal that each child at camp has a successful and healthy experience – socially, emotionally, and physically. If your child has assistance needs, please call our office and let our staff know before your camper’s first day so we can help ensure this success. Examples include: Learning difficulties or instructions better understood when given a specific way, Extra notification or supervision before/while transitioning between activities, Significant anxiety about being away from home/parents, Significant social difficulties in group settings.

At Camp Wing Day Camp we provide swimming lessons every day! On the first day of your child’s first session, his or her ability in the water will be evaluated. This enables our swim staff to place your child in the appropriate group for lessons. Campers will be re-evaluated during lessons and at the end of the session. They will be given documentation of swim levels reached during their time at camp, enabling them to enroll in off-season lessons at the same level.
Yes! There are always lifeguards at the pool whenever children are inside the gate (not just when they are in the water) and additional staff are in the water with campers during evaluations, swim lessons and free swim.
Drop Off in the morning takes place between 8:45 and 8:55 AM at the horseshoe entrance on Myrtle Street. A staff member will be present to help your camper from the car.
Pick up is located at the Keene Street entrance. Parents picking up their camper should stay in their car with their photo ID readily accessible. The counselors will check identification, confirm that the name is on the child’s authorized pick-up list, and open the car door for the children.
From Rt. 3, Exit 11 (Route 14): At the bottom of the exit 11 ramp, turn left onto Route 14. Follow for 1.3 miles until the road forks (just after Fire Station & the Ashdod Animal Hospital). At the fork, bear right onto Union Street for half a mile to the intersection for Keene Street. For pick-up: Turn right on Keene; continue for 0.5 miles, and you will see signs on your left for Day Camp pick-up.

Backpack, complete change of clothes, bathing suit, towel, bug repellant (non-aerosol), waterproof sunscreen, water bottle, and a sweatshirt or rain coat for cool/rainy days. Campers should always wear sneakers. For safety reasons, flip-flops may only be worn to/from the pool.
If you need to pick up your child from camp earlier than 4:00 pm, please send a note to camp with your child in the morning including the time at which you plan to pick up your child. Please make sure your child gives the note to a counselor. All children leaving early will be picked up at the Pavilion; please park in the horseshoe by the Stockade and walk to the Pavilion.
No worries! If your child forgets his/her lunch, swimsuit, etc., please call the camp to let us know. You can bring it to the camp office at 47 Myrtle Street and we will make sure your camper receives their belongings!
On the first Friday of each session, parents and families are invited to join us at noon for lunch. After lunch, follow your child’s afternoon schedule through an activity period, spread, and free swim!
We do our best to honor “cabin” requests. There is a place on the registration form to indicate if there are campers you would like your child to be grouped with for the session. We form our groups by age, so campers closer together in age are more likely to be placed in the same group.
You can register online here!
Yes. There is a non-refundable deposit of $100 per session, per camper.
Your balance is due 60 days prior to the start of camp. If you register within 60 days of camp starting, you must pay the full amount at registration. You will receive an email with your invoice indicating your remaining balance.
Yes! We will have an open house on Sunday April 7st and Sunday May 5th both from 2-4pm. You will have the opportunity to register that day as well.
Yes! It is offered mornings from 7:30 – 9 am and includes breakfast. Also in the afternoon from 4:00 – 6 pm and includes a snack. $100 per session.
Recognizing that early in the morning and later in the afternoon, many children are less active than during the main part of the camp day, we offer a mix of sport/active and quieter activities during these times and allow campers to choose dependent on their energy level and particular interest at that time. Please park along the horseshoe by the Stockade (47 Myrtle St. entrance) and walk to the Pavilion. In the morning, you will need to check your child in with a staff member. In the afternoon, you must show your ID to the staff member supervising check-out before leaving with your child.
Yes! We offer daily AM and PM bus transportation from the surrounding towns at a rate of $100 per session. At the bus stop, please wait in the car with your camper. An adult must be present to put the camper on the bus; please do not drop your child off at the bus stop and leave them there. It is suggested that you be at the bus stop a few minutes before the scheduled pick-up time. The bus will not wait at a stop past the scheduled pick-up time if the children expected to ride are not present. In the afternoon, bus counselors cannot leave a child at the bus stop without an adult to sign the child out. If there is no authorized adult at the stop to pick up your camper, he/she will be brought back to camp and will stay with the Extended Day campers until a parent/guardian or other authorized pick up person can be located. This person will need to come to camp to pick up the child. Camp reserves the right to charge your account an additional fee in the event that the bus must return to camp with your child.
The bus route varies with the traffic and weather, though generally it is no more than 10 minutes off schedule due to these factors. If you are waiting to pick up your child and the bus is more than 15 minutes late, please have one adult at the bus stop call to let us know. In the unlikely event of a significantly delayed bus schedule, we will do our best to inform parents as quickly as possible and provide accurate information about where the bus is in the route order.
Yes! On the second Tuesday of each session a field trip is offered for an additional fee of $25 per session. This includes transportation to and from the event and admission. Campers must wear their camp T-shirt to travel off camp on the field trip. This helps with the visibility and safety of our group in public places. Please have your camper still bring a lunch and drink to camp just like every other day.
That is okay! Many campers choose to not go on the field trip. In this case they will have a regular day of camp activities.
On the second Wednesday of each session, we offer campers ages 8 and up the opportunity to sleep over at camp for one night for an additional fee of $15. The night includes special late-afternoon activities, a cookout, a dance or evening swim, campfire complete with s’mores and songs, and a night out under the stars! Overnighters should be picked up Thursday afternoon at their regular time.
If your camper is staying for the overnight, please have them bring the following to camp on the second Wednesday of the session: a sleeping bag & pillow pajamas, toiletries, sweatshirt, clothes for camp on Thursday, 2 lunches (Wed. & Thurs.), extra bathing suit & towel, and a flashlight. There will be a designated place to store their gear and both lunches will be refrigerated.
Yes, we have a nurse and health center staff at Camp Wing Day Camp.
Our health center staff will be available on check-in days for parents to turn over any medication that children need at camp. All medication must be in the original, labeled bottle in order for the nurse to accept the medication. The health staff must have written information from the parent/guardian describing the amount, time and type of medication each camper must receive.
The health and safety of your child is very important to us. We have full time health care professionals, including registered nurses, on site whose job it is to ensure that care for everything from minor injuries to emergencies are handled with your child’s best interest in mind. Parents will be immediately contacted if an important medical concern arises. If your child is ill, he or she can rest in the health center supervised by the health staff. If he or she is feeling very sick or does not feel better after basic care, we will contact a parent or guardian to pick up the child at camp.
Yes. All campers should bring their own lunch every day. Please pack your child’s lunch in a disposable brown paper bag. Write his or her first and last name clearly on the bag. The camp will store your child’s lunch in the refrigerator. For storage reasons, brown paper bags are convenient; also, campers will not want to carry around a heavy cooler or insulated bag for the rest of the afternoon.
Campers eat lunch with their group and counselor. Just like at school, sometimes kids trade or share parts of their lunch. If your child has allergies to food, it is very important for your child AND our staff to know about it! Please make a note of allergies on your health form when registering and on opening day. We can store their lunch in a different location. Camp Wing Day Camp is not Peanut or Tree Nut Free. If your child is not allowed to eat foods that aren’t provided from home, please tell your child and his/her counselor.
