Mid-Sun Summer Day Camps are a proud partner of Between Friends with their I.C.A.N! Program.
Sunsations camps are offered for children aged 5-12 years old. Each week, campers are divided by age into 4 different groups where they can interact and socialize with kids their own age. Monday to Wednesday, campers will spend time at Mid-Sun working on different activity kits such as cooking, science, art and more. Every group schedule is different each day of the week and below is a brief example of what a day at Mid-Sun will look like:
7:00am – 9:00am: campers are being dropped off at Mid-Sun during Pre-Care
9:00am – 9:30am: camp-wide game in gym with all Sunsations campers

Every Thursday, we visit Midnapore Lake (weather dependent) and spend the day swimming (lifeguard present) and playing at the park.

Hours of Operation:
Pre-Care: 7AM – 9AM
Camp: 9AM – 4PM
Post-Care: 4PM – 6PM
Please note: Because the campers go on off-site trips to the lake, field trips, or even just for nature walks, it is imperative that the camper arrive by 9AM. If your camper will be late, or will be picked up ahead of the 4PM pick-up time, please notify the Daycamp Director at your earliest convenience. This way we can see that arrangements can be made to accommodate the scheduling. With 120 children a day, the office staff will not know where your child is, without a heads up.
Late Pick-up Policy
Parents have until 6PM to pick up their campers. Any parent who arrives at Mid-Sun later than 6PM to pick up their child will be charged the rate of $1.00 per minute. This is due to staff having to unexpectedly stay later than originally scheduled. Only cash payments are accepted and can be made directly to the staff member forced to stay late, or to the Day Camp Director the next morning. Failure to comply with this policy may result in removal from current or succeeding camps.
From March 1 – May 14 a full refund will be granted, minus a $25 admin fee per camp, to a maximum of $100. From May 15 – June 25, a 50% refund will be offered only if the camper’s spot can be filled. After June 26, no refund will be offered unless a doctor’s note is provided, or if the camper’s spot can be filled; if either of these requirements is met then a 50% refund will be granted. Transfers between weeks are at the Day Camp Director’s Discretion.
Please note: when registering your camper in a summer camp with the Mid-Sun Summer Day Camps you are acknowledging that you have read and understood all day camp policies.
