Pierce Day Camp for Children Age Eight

Choose Your Own Adventure at Pierce Country Day Camp!

Eights know what they want, and Pierce listens! Eight is when Pierce campers get more input into determining their own camp activities. Through our "Activ8" elective program and expanded choice scheduling, campers can choose preferred activities from a tremendous range of athletic and creative possibilities. Eights also enjoy weekly League Play in soccer, basketball and baseball/softball. Now swimming in our two largest pools, Eights can participate on our Pierce Sharks Swim Team and even try the high dive! Our enthusiastic Eights have so many ways to have endless summer FUN!
