Camp Miller Day Camp


DAY CAMP AT CAMP MILLER (Ages 5-11) Located on the Shores of Sturgeon Lake

YMCA Camp Miller is not just a sleep away camp! Kids from all around the Sturgeon Lake and Moose Lakes areas can come to camp during the day for a full week, Monday through Friday, and experience a all of fabulous activities and memorable experiences that camp has to offer!

Day Camp at Camp Miller is a great way to introduce a younger child to the summer camp experience without being away from home at night. Your camper will experience most of the activities offered to our overnight campers, including tower, archery, horseback riding, swimming, boating, arts and crafts, and Theme Week activities.

Many day campers eventually become overnight campers and love that they already “know the ropes” here at camp!

Daily Schedule

Morning: Each morning Day Campers enjoy half an hour of Nature Exploration time, followed by two Cabin Activity Periods where they will enjoy activities like archery, climbing tower, and barnyard.

Afternoon: Campers eat their bagged lunches under our beautiful pavilion and then enjoy a 45 minute rest/quiet period before an hour of swim time! After that they will participate alongside regular campers in our Theme Day and Carnival activities before having a small snack before heading home.
