What's Traveling Day Camp?
Traveling Day Camp is a cooperative program between your local church congregation and Camp Hanover. Camp Hanover provides a team of highly trained staff and a high-quality camp program. Your congregation provides the location, facilities, the campers and a handful of volunteers. Each week, our Day Camp teams travel to new locations and provide a rock-solid Camp Hanover experience to a new group of children.

Why Do Families Choose Camp Hanover’s Day Camp?
We believe that every child will benefit from the Camp Hanover experience in immeasurable ways. Through Traveling Day Camp, we can offer children and families a way to experience the community building and faith development benefits of summer camp, that they might otherwise have to pass up because of being too far away or due to scheduling conflicts that make an overnight camp experience a challenge.
Camp Hanover’s Day Camp is a revolutionary and time-tested program. When it was created nearly 20 years ago, Camp Hanover’s Traveling Day Camp was the first program of it’s kind. Since that time, camps across the country have adopted our model. Traveling Day Camp continues to bring the Camp Hanover experience within easy reach, right into your neighborhood, thanks to your local church congregation.
Why Do Churches Host Traveling Day Camp?
Day Camp partners ministries that have proven to go hand-in-hand: Outdoor Ministries and Congregational Ministries. Through outdoor ministries within the congregational setting, we are able to provide a place apart within a familiar community, in which campers build Christian community, challenge, grow and explore their personal faith, live in and care for God’s creation develop outdoor living skills and learn and practice servant leadership. Day Camp provides a way for your church to offer supplemental summer programming to families with small children in the congregation. Day Camp is also a highly visible outreach to your community. By hosting a day camp, you can open the church doors to the neighborhood while providing a rewarding avenue for local mission and ministry to members of your congregation.
