Badger Day Camp is Westchester’s premier summer day camp for kids ages 3-15. Badger Day Camp provides door to door supervised transportation, daily hot lunch, towel service, exceptional counselor to camper ratio, sports activities including world class swim instruction, a nature program, art & crafts and even yoga!
Through a group living experience, campers develop friendships and expand their social skills. Everyone, regardless of the severity of their disability, is welcome at Badger Camp. Wisconsin Badger Camp's staff are as important to the campers as the activities or the natural surroundings.
The practice of Yoga goes back centuries, the basics around yoga practice apply to everyone. Badger introduced Yoga to our program over 7 years ago, to teach this ancient form of exercise to our campers. The Badger program focuses on teaching motor skill development, social skills, and self-control within a playful and nurturing class.

Full Day and Mini Day campers swim twice per day for an hour each. Half Day campers swim once for one hour. On a camper’s first day, their swimming abilities will be evaluated. We never assume a camper can swim. Once evaluated, they will be placed in subgroups according to their abilities. In addition to their regular group staff, pool staff and lifeguards will be on duty at every swim period.
For parents with children who will either pick up or drop off their child: Morning Drop Off: Children who will NOT be utilizing morning transportation should be dropped off at 8:45am to a Badger Day Camp employee who will be located at the top of our driveway.
Make sure that you are at least 10 feet ahead of the bus before crossing. Campers are required to wear safety belts and or child restraints. Children need to remain seated for the entire trip. Badger Day Camp is not responsible for campers prior to pick-up or after drop off.
The general camp practice is to contact parents when there is concern about a camper’s health and/or when a situation is not progressing as expected. Depending on the degree of illness or injury, we will then contact any emergency contacts listed on the application and/or 911.
Each camper must have a completed on-line application as well as completed health forms no later than June 15th. The health form may be completed by a parent or guardian. The immunization records must be the most current year and have the physician’s stamp or signature.
Any over the counter medications ( i.e. Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl) will only be administered if the “Parent and Physician Authorization for Administration of Medication in Camp” section of the camper health form is completed and signed.
Upon return, campers must be examined by the camp nurse . Medication: Any medication that is to be administered at camp must be handed into the nurse in the original prescription container with the prescribing physician’s instructions. Medications must be brought to camp prior to the camper’s start date.
Leadership Program. The Leadership program is the final stage of a campers experience at Badger. It is offered to 15 year olds and allows them to still be part of the camp experience, while helping prepare them for the next stage of young adulthood.
We offer consecutive 4 week, 6 week or 8 week options.
Full day. Those entering kindergarten and above (through 12 years old) are grouped by gender and what grade they are entering into. All campers are provided a snack in the morning, a hot lunch and ice cream every day.
