Discovery Day Camps

Summer is Better at Bancroft!

Day Camp with Enrichment Programs (Explorers, Juniors, and Seniors)


Bancroft School is committed to helping students “own their learning,” and the same is true at our Discovery Day Camps. Even our youngest campers have an age-appropriate choice in their daily experience, with a variety of enrichment program options to make their camp experience their own. Campers will discover new interests, new friends, and new skills as they play and create. One-week sessions in your choice of full-or half-day. All full-day programs include daily swim instruction at the Greendale YMCA led by certified instructors.  Details for specific age groups below.
