At Home Activities
While many of us are staying at home due the COVID-19 outbreak, we invite you to join the weekly "Purchase Cooking Challenge" on our Facebook page. Each week, we post a different recipe from the Purchase Day Camp Cookbook and ask you to post your results. Take the challenge if you dare. We are also posting fun games to complete at home on our What's Happening page.

At Purchase Day Camp...
We are laser focused on your camper and their experience. At any camp, the staff make the program! None are better than here at Purchase Day Camp where teachers lead every group. Children are our number one priority! From getting to know them personally, to making sure that every day at camp is fun, active, exciting and positive. We don't forget about our parents either. We are dedicated to providing outstanding customer service. Summer happens at Purchase Day Camp.

For 2020, we have renovated our Kitchen, where cooking classes are held, with new sinks, mat flooring, lighting, cookware, a dishwasher, fresh paint and more. More changes are planned, so stay tuned!

The END ZONE is now...The BACKYARD GAMES ARENA! We had additions to Backyard Games in 2019, including a life-sized Operation Patient and a 42" x 38" Labyrinth Maze. Our Miniature Golf Course, "LeBlanc Links", was entirely redone for the 2019 Camp Season, with all new obstacles, bridges and more. 3 Disc Golf and Foot Golf holes were also installed at Schweiger Field.

We also had many other exciting changes in recent camp seasons! Click HERE for more details.
