Transportation for Campers
Transportation for Days-A-Way campers is limited to parents or guardians dropping off on Monday morning at the start of the session. We also request that parents or guardians pick up their camper(s) on Friday afternoon. If there is a conflict with transportation it is imperative to communicate this with the Camp office so accommodations can be made.
Bedding, Towels and Linens
CCSC provides a pillow, pillowcase, sheets, blankets and towels for showering. Campers may wish to bring along personal bedding items to make them feel at home. As the camp towels are small and only for showering, it is best to bring along a large beach towel to use after swimming.
Clothing and Equipment
Campers will need to pack enough clothing for 5 days and 4 nights. While DAW campers do not have laundry service while at camp, our camp laundry service is always available for emergencies. The Parent Handbook will include a detailed clothing list, however, suggested items include:
- Bathing Suits (2)
- Shorts (4)
- T Shirts (6)
- Long Sleeved Shirt (1)
- Long Pants (2)
- Underwear (6)
- Pajamas (1)
- Sweatshirts (1)
- Beach Towel (1)
- Hat (1)
- Rain Gear (1)
- Sneakers (1)
- Socks (6)
- Sandals (1)
- Duffel Bag
- Insect Repellent
- Sun Screen
CCSC provides all athletic equipment, but some campers feel more comfortable with their own tennis racquets, sailing life jackets, or baseball gloves. Valuable personal articles must not be brought to camp (i.e. electronic games, cell phones, electronic equipment, expensive sunglasses, etc.)
To maintain our distinctive camp environment, we do not allow campers to utilize or have in their possession cellular telephones or wi-fi enabled devices while at camp. Counselors and staff are also restricted in their use of cellular phones and other electronic devices while on campus.
Friday Spirit Assembly
Each Friday afternoon, the entire Monomoy Day Camp (including DAW) participates in our special all-camp assembly beginning at approximately 2:00PM. The length of the assembly varies each week and may delay bus departures on Friday afternoons. Families and friends are welcome to attend!
DAW Spaces are limited to four cabins with two allocated for girls and two allocated for boys. Each cabin accommodates approximately 12 campers.
Campers may enroll for 1 to 3 sessions in our DAW program. Enrolling for more than 2-3 weeks indicates your camper is ready for a full residential camping experience. Campers who request more than 3 weeks will be placed on a waiting list for the additional sessions.
Campers may also sign up for DAW in conjunction with additional day camp sessions.
