Explore Camp Moon River at Savannah Country Day School


Camp Moon River is a full-day traditional-style summer day camp with an "overnight feel" for rising K - 8th-grade children (extended care offered) with a half-day program offered to rising PK/JK students who are 4-years old before their first day of camp.  

Your child will get the benefit of an overnight-camp atmosphere packaged into the convenience and affordability of a local day camp.  Campers of all ages (PK/JK - 8th grade) will have a blast while making friends, learning compassionate leadership and what it means to be part of a camp community.  CMR emphasizes the importance of good sportsmanship, self-respect, trying new things and, most importantly, having fun.

As part of the overnight camp atmosphere, campers are separated by division (rising grades):

  • Pre-Juniors (PK/JK)
  • Juniors (K-1st)
  • Inters (2nd-5th)
  • Seniors (6th-8th)

Campers are then put into "bunks" according to grade. In addition to bunk and division activities, campers will have the opportunity for CHOICE most every day.  At least once a day, we'll be together as an entire camp.  Everything we do from the schedule to the bunk names contributes to the "campiness" of camp.

Whether a camper attends one week or all ten weeks of Camp Moon River, s/he will leave having had a meaningful summer experience with treasured memories, dear friendships, and valuable personal growth.

Rising 9th-12th graders have the opportunity to be Junior Counselors in Training (JCITs) and Counselors in Training (CITs). On a case-by-case basis, rising 12th graders may become counselors or remain as a CIT.  All counselors and specialists will be 18 and over.
