  • Day Camp: Little Dolphins, Sandfiddlers, Dolphins, Sharks (June 3 - August 9)

    Looking for an exciting summer experience? Join our summer day camps to experience endless fun and engagement. Spend your summer playing on Cape Henry’s state-of-the-art playground. Reacquaint yourself with friends from the past or meet new friends as you continue to grow and develop. Our Summer at the Cape Day Camps focuses on fun while also bridging the learning gap between school years. No matter your age, your days will be filled with everything from academic engagement to swim lessons, craft making to sports and games, science experiments to fun-filled field trips, and much more. All Day Camps are led by full-time teachers at Cape Henry Collegiate or teachers from Virginia Beach City Public Schools. Each teacher has multiple years of experience within our school community. All full-day campers receive a full-service, well-balanced lunch from the newly renovated Café Dolphin, and all full- and half-day campers receive a mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack and drink. All campers must be fully toilet trained. Our Summer at the Cape Day Camps are licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services.

    Summer Learning. Day campers spend time each day on specific weekly themes, digging into age-appropriate topics like America’s National Parks, the Natural Wonders of the World, Disney and Star Wars, outdoor adventure and camping, Dr. Seuss, and more. Twice a week campers will immerse themselves in Cape Henry’s science labs, working on experiments and exercises to learn and test the theme of the week. In addition to these wonderful and creative topics, students will spend time with age-appropriate reading, writing, and math while having the opportunity to work on summer academic assignments for the upcoming school year.

    Exercise and Fun. Campers take part in daily free play and structured activities within all of Cape Henry’s fantastic facilities. Cape Henry boasts a spacious, air-conditioned field house with P.E. equipment and supplies for every game and activity. A turf field and multiple grass athletic fields host countless outdoor games, and a state-of-the-art playground caters to the imagination of all age groups.

    Swimming. Partnered with Virginia Beach Parks and Recreation, Day Camp groups travel via bus to the Great Neck Recreation Center (Dolphins and Sharks) and to Seatack Recreation Center (Little Dolphins and Sandfiddlers) twice a week for age-appropriate swim lessons. Lessons are taught by American Red Cross certified swim instructors while supervised by American Red Cross certified lifeguards. The swim curriculum is developed and taught by the aquatic staff of Virginia Beach Parks and Recreation. Campers travel to and from swim lessons with their lead teachers, and their lead teachers remain poolside throughout each swim lesson.

    Field Trips. Campers take part in a unique field trip every week of the summer. Join us as we go bowling at Pinboy’s, visit the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, jump around at the indoor Bounce House facility, travel to our local state parks, enjoy a hike in the Norfolk Botanical Gardens, and more. These fun-filled experiences take the campers off campus to some of the area’s most desirable locations. Day Camp teachers and staff members accompany the students on these fully supervised trips.
