The Day Camp Experience
The Monomoy Day Camp offers a co-educational day camp program for children ages 4 to 17 with approximately 300 campers per week. Campers will experience all the fun, spirit, independence and camaraderie that define summer camp.
Campers are placed in units according to age, grade, developmental maturity and friendships. The geographical distribution of campers is approximately:
- 12% from Cape Cod
- 46% from other Massachusetts towns
- 37% from 28 different states

Sessions at Monomoy Day Camp
Campers may attend Monomoy Day Camp for anywhere from one to seven weeks. We do offer a special 5 day/ 4 night Days A-Way program for 1st time overnight campers. Another special program is our Leadership Training Program for teens. Campers in this program must attend camp for the entire 7 week season.
Day Camp Staff
The Monomoy Day Camp is a co-educational day camp with a dedicated and talented staff. Nancy W Garran, CCSC’s Executive Director, is actively involved in the administration of the Monomoy Day Camp. Nancy has worked as a director at CCSC since 1979 and is an American Camping Association Certified Camping Professional with a BS from Skidmore College. Rick “Otis” Moyer, M.Ed. Springfield College, serves as the Director of the “Mighty” Monomoy Day Camp. Otis, who has been involved with CCSC for more than five decades, oversees the Day Camp and Days A-Way programs.
Many Monomoy Day Camp counselors have quite a few years of camp experience and are graduates of our Leadership Training Program. New counselors are college age or older and are chosen for their interest in working with and teaching children. The ratio of staff to campers is approximately 1:5.
