Our number one priority is the safety of your child. We maintain a high staff-to-camper ratio, and our experienced staff members are background-checked, fully trained and carefully supervised. Camp Vacamas is accredited by the American Camp Association, as well as local and state Health Departments. We have an onsite medical team, and there is a hospital just minutes away. All waterfront activities are conducted by certified American Red Cross Swim Instructors, Lifeguards, and a Waterfront Director.


The menu at Camp Vacamas is child-friendly, healthy, and plentiful. Our day campers eat lunch each day in our dining hall with their group and counselor. Meals are served family-style and vegetarian and vegan alternatives are available. We offer a salad bar at each meal so that children can limit their carbohydrates and fat consumption, or have a balanced diet. Our salad bars are rich in fresh vegetables and fruits as well as non-meat proteins such as beans and dairy products. We do not serve pork or shellfish. We can accommodate some dietary restrictions (please call for more information). A fruit snack and cold beverages are offered in the afternoon.

I can’t begin to sum up all the fond memories I’ve had while at camp. But what I can say to any parent who is looking for a place to send your child, This is it! Camp Vacamas is truly a magical gem!
