SUMMER CAMP 2017
Our 39th Camp Season!
June 5 - July 14
Jordan Glen invites you to join us as we celebrate our 38th camp season offering one of the finest summer day camp programs. We are situated on 20 acres in a country setting that includes a large athletic field, swimming pool, tennis court, 2 playgrounds, 7 acres of woods, and a wide variety of plants and animals. Our air-conditioned facility has activity rooms, art deck, kitchen, and a piano that provide a friendly and informal atmosphere, as well as a multi-purpose room for large group and rainy day activities.
Jordan Glen Summer Camp meets Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. (We do not offer after-camp childcare.) There are two 3-week sessions. Each of the two sessions offers different programs so that a child enrolled for the entire 6 weeks will experience many new activities. Campers entering kindergarten through 8th grade in Fall 2016 are invited to enroll.
Jordan Glen Summer Camp’s main objective is for each child to enjoy his or her time spent away from home by experiencing a wide variety of activities to challenge and enrich him or her. We seek to foster a healthy self-concept for each child in a caring and supportive atmosphere. Our competent staff will constantly strive to be responsive to each child’s individuality as well as to the group as a whole.
Camp features a different theme each week along with sports, music, drama, arts and crafts, games and special events. Special Friday activities will culminate each session.
Diverse afternoon electives are offered each session. Campers have the opportunity to choose several of these activities which they especially enjoy and wish to pursue on a more in-depth level.
Our “Senior” campers (6th - 8th graders), as well as campers in certain electives, may have the opportunity to participate in some special activities and field trips.
Swimming, including instruction for the youngest camper groups, is held each day, weather permitting. All water activities are rigidly monitored by our certified lifeguard and camp staff.
Campers bring their lunches Monday through Thursday. Every Friday will be a Pizza, Cookout, or other special lunch that we provide, always with a vegetarian option.

Campers may carpool to camp or ride on our school bus for an additional transportation fee. The bus will leave Westside Park at 8:25 each morning and return at 3:00 each afternoon. The bus will also stop at Haile Plantation at 8:45 a.m. and 2:40 p.m. The transportation fee is $100 per child for each session ($175 for both sessions) on a space-available basis. The camp will be happy to assist in coordinating carpools upon request but cannot guarantee or be responsible for any transportation except that provided on our bus.
Please be on time to drop off and pick up your children at the bus stop or make other suitable arrangements in advance as we cannot be responsible for children before they board or after they exit the bus. Campers not met at Haile Plantation will be left at the Haile bus stop; campers not met at Westside Park will be left at the Westside Park bus stop. In case of emergency, the bus phone number is 538-9758.
