Summer Day Camp
For more than 50 years, Camp Rockmont has provided a quality residential program for boys from around the world. Since 2009 we have provided the same level of care and intentional youth development to both boys and girls in our own back yard through a day camp program. The Rockmont Day Camp incorporates many aspects of our overall mission of growth: discovering new skills, exploring the natural world, and building a community that values each child. Daily activities include waterfront play, outdoor adventure, group games, and creative learning. We strive to help each camper discover that they are a child of God with a unique story to share.
From 8:30 to 5:00 Monday through Friday, up to 30 campers who are ages 6 through 10 join us for an uplifting day camp program that is staffed by 8 to 10 full-time day camp staff. They provide individual attention and unique experiences that day campers will remember for the rest of their lives! Meals and snacks are provided.
Rockmont is located on 550 acres at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains beyond Swannanoa and one mile past Owen High School. Families may register online! For more information download the Rockmont Day Camp Fact Sheet 2015 DayCamp Facts.
