Summer Camps 2024

Four-day camps, June 17–August 9, 2024

Dodge is offering seven weeks of four-day Summer Camps between June 17 and August 9. Camps run from 8:15 a.m.–3:00 p.m. and are for kids entering grades 1–2, 3–5, and 6–8. Cost and location vary by camp. Need-based scholarships are available to those who qualify.

For ages 3–5, see Dodge Nature Preschool’s six-week summer program.

How Summer Camp Works


To provide equitable access to camp for all families, Summer Camps are filled using a lottery process. The lottery was open from February 5–12. If you entered the lottery, here’s what you can expect next:

  1. Between February 12–26, our staff will process lottery forms. Numbers will be assigned randomly.
  2. By Monday, February 26, you’ll be notified via email if your child was drawn and placed in a camp or waitlisted*. Your email will detail camp registration instructions or waitlist information. If placed, you’ll have one week to register for camp—your spot will be offered to the next child on the waitlist after this week.

*Your child is automatically placed on the waitlist if they’re not drawn in the lottery.
