Shipley Day Camp, founded in 1985, is returning again this summer. Running for six weeks from Tuesday, June 20 through Friday, July 28, this traditional day camp will offer a balanced program of arts and athletics to kids entering grades K-5. Campers will have fun engaging with friends in non-competitive sports and games, creative arts and crafts projects, science and STEM experiments, and drama and music. Each week kids will also participate in theme-based activities including outer space, animal adventures, around the world, and ending with the Camp Fest! We are hoping that weekly field trips and swimming will return this summer as well. 
The Day Camp is open to Shipley and non-Shipley students. It will run from 9:00 to 3:00, with an aftercare option until 4:30pm. We will follow COVID protocols as set by the school and the Montgomery County Department of Health. 
Nikki Wiseman, current fourth grade teacher, is the Camp Director. The camp will be staffed primarily by experienced Shipley Lower School teachers. If you have any specific questions about the Day Camp, please contact Nikki Wiseman at
