Age Groups

Exciting Activities For All Ages!

At Mohawk Day Camp, we carefully design our programs to balance physical and creative activities that excite and challenge children of all ages. As our campers grow, so does their ability to customize how they spend their camp day.

Every camp group is led by a highly qualified head counselor, nearly always a teacher or parent, who is chosen for his or her leadership ability and spirited camp personality. A head counselor supervises only one group, including a team of four or more general counselors, and is with that group throughout the day.

Preschool Camp: Age 3 or 42021-12-15T20:04:20+00:00

Campers Age 3 or 4 (Co-ed)

Our preschool program provides warmth, understanding, and support so both our littlest campers and their parents feel secure in knowing they are well cared for and safe. Knowing that camp can represent many “firsts” – from riding a bus to learning to swim – we work with families to create a gentle transition into Mohawk’s world of friends, fun, and discovery.

Preschool Camp’s staff, facilities and activity centers are separate from those of older campers and built to accommodate their unique needs, including shallow developmental swimming pools where children can comfortably stand, smaller-scale sports fields, specialized activity centers, and more! During carefully paced days that balance physical and creative activities with both structured and imaginative play, preschoolers thrive at Mohawk.

Upper Camp campers continue to develop their independence with the opportunity to select from a choice of daily activities.

Senior Camp: Entering 4th – 9th Grade2022-05-02T19:27:21+00:00

Campers Entering 5th through 9th Grade

Senior Campers take pride in having their own identity within the camp – recognized with special t-shirts, unique traditions, and separate facilities, such as their own sports fields. Senior Camp combines the best elements of our traditional program with an interesting array of activities and choices that enable our oldest campers to “build their own day.” Senior campers will enjoy 3 hours per day of daily and weekly choice periods including Flex Time, Options & Electives.

Both instructional and recreational swim programs will be available to campers multiple times each day.

To make the Senior Camp experience even more special, campers entering 5th through 8th grade have the optional opportunity to enjoy a one-week sleep-away program at a nearby resident camp.

Leadership Training: Age 15 or Entering 10th Grade2021-12-15T20:05:37+00:00

Mohawk’s Leadership training program combines the fun of being a camper with strong preparation for early work experiences. The main focus of the program is for campers to be able to transition to camp staff. This program will encourage participants to gain responsibility, develop independence, realize the benefits of teamwork, and promote a willingness to try new things.

Leader-in-Training (LIT) – age 15 by the start of camp or entering 10th grade

The LIT program is designed to develop individual leadership qualities, job-related experience, and general employment skills through various experiences at camp. LITs will have responsibilities similar to, and work in conjunction with, other Mohawk staff members. They will receive additional support and guidance while working with children, problem-solving, learning how to give and accept feedback, and how to manage peer relations with coworkers. The goal of the LIT program is to prepare the candidate for future employment opportunities in the workplace, with the possibility of securing a future summer job with Mohawk Day Camp.
