Gold Hollow Day Camp 

Gold Hollow Day Camp offers an outdoor experience for youth ages 5-12 years old on the shores of scenic Lake Vera nestled among pine trees. It is perfect for first time and experienced day campers. Day campers participate in a wide variety of activities and new experiences including canoeing, arts & crafts, hiking, outdoor cooking, games, and swimming. Each day will be built around a theme that campers are encouraged to participate in. This year they include Wild West Day, "Blast from the Past" Day, Wacky Wednesday, "Out of this World" Day, and Mystery Day. Nutritious lunches will be served in an outdoor setting. Parents will need to provide transportation to and from camp each day.  Day camp offers a chance for campers to put down their electronic devices and spend days experiencing new adventures and building new friendships. Our commitment is to helping youth “find their spark” and THRIVE in a safe and caring outdoor environment.

Safety considerations:  All staff and campers will need to show proof of negative COVID test within 24 hours of arrival at camp.  All of our activities are in outdoor settings except bath houses.
