Day Camp for children ages 8-14.

Sunnyhill is proud to announce the introduction of a new day camp, geared towards children ages 8-14 with and without developmental disabilities.  This new endeavor was introduced thanks to a generous donation from the Jefferson Foundation, who is fully supportive of programs to further the outreach to children in our communities.

The camp will be held weekdays at Sunnyhill Adventures in Dittmer and include a variety of activities inside our NEW multipurpose building/wellness center as well as outdoor adventures.

The day program is a great introduction to camp for those who may not be quite ready for the overnight experience.  Qualifying siblings are also invited to attend camp, creating opportunities for families to participate together in a welcoming environment.

Cost is only $125/child and includes a snack.  Drop off time is from 7am-8:30am with pick-up is from 4:30pm-6pm.  There are eight themed weeks are available to choose from this year:

  • June 3-7, 2019 (Adventure)

Outdoor education:

Our expansive wooded setting nestled in Jefferson County supplies an ideal location for anyone looking to experience nature a it was meant to be.

Outdoor Challenge:

Our 50-foot alpine tower and swing will surely challenge campers of all levels and abilities. The tandem zip line begins adjacent to the 50-foot alpine tower and zips through the cedar trees, over our pristine lake ending 530-feet later at the landing platform. Sunnyhill is a challenge by choice facility and for some, taking one step on the tower is as difficult as getting to the top for others. Our low-ropes course is designed to teach teamwork , while being as fun experience for each individual. in addition to our on-site activities, we also offer cave explorations and hiking expeditions at Meramec State Park.

Water Sports:

At Sunnyhill Adventures we offer a wide variety of water-based activities, such as our lakefront where campers can fish, canoe, enjoy a paddle boat ride, or just relax in the pavilion. Our on-site swimming pool boasts 60,000 gallons of fun where campers can cool off and unwind poolside, play water basketball, or develop their swimming skills. Additionally, we offer off-site float trips ranging from two to five miles down the Meramec River. Sunnyhill has also acquired a mammoth waterslide. It can be found beside our swimming pool and provides our campers with a fun activity during the warm weather.

Creative arts:

All of our campers are encouraged to express themselves through various arts and crafts projects, creating images and collages using materials that they find in nature.

Sports activities:

In addition to all of our other program, we also offer campers the opportunity to take part in basketball, kickball, volleyball, soccer, basketball, and archery.
