A Haven for Children

When Forrester “Pop” Pierce was a twenty-five-year-old Physical Education teacher and coach he envisioned a unique summer program for children. It would be a safe place to broaden horizons and boost self-esteem; an extraordinary environment where children could romp, play, sing, dance, swim, dive, laugh and most importantly be kids. This setting would promote freedom, self-expression, and positive physical and social development. It would be a true haven for children where there was something for everyone and success for all!

That place is Pierce Country Day Camp! Over 100 years later much has changed, but the early values of Pop Pierce remain resolute and unyielding. We encourage you to give us a call and set up a tour of the camp and facilities. The best way to learn about difference between Pierce Country Day Camp and other day camps is to come see, feel, and experience the energy, spirit and awesome fun for yourself.
