At Dedham Country Day Camp, we believe that summer time should reinforce the wonders of being a child, and the enduring joy of friendship.
If you have a child between the ages of 3 through entering 8th grade, and you believe that summer is a time to explore, play, laugh, and learn, then DCD Camp is just the place. Our small size allows for each camper to get the individual attention we all want for our children. Come find out for yourself!

What the DCD Community is Saying
Thanks so much to you, Megan and the rest of the camp staff. We have been so impressed with camp. I am so glad we chose DCDC!
Thank you for a wonderful camp experience for my kids! My son and daughter both come home happy, exhausted, and brimming with stories.
Thanks again for a great summer, Jackson really enjoyed all of the staff, kids and overall atmosphere. We’re already counting down to next summer!
Thanks for a super awesome summer! The girls have had a blast!!
My daughter had the best summer. She comes home everyday saying how much fun she had and her swimming has improved!
Camp was a 10 out of 10 today! I love it!
Everyday when I pick my son up from Camp he thanks me for sending him to DCDC.
Thank you so much for a great summer camp, you are so well organized and it really makes me feel good and comfortable when I drop off my son.
My son is absolutely loving camp; it is such a positive experience for him. You and your team do a fantastic job; I am beyond grateful!
Thank you so much for organizing the CIT part of the DCD Camp to be a fun, informative and wonderful experience for my camper. When he was a camper years ago, he would have a big smile on his face at pick-up, and as a teen CIT at DCD, he had that same smile at pick-up again!
My son loved all the counselors, loved all the kids. Said he loved that everyone wasn't just 'bossing him around' I think that made him feel more valuable and gave him more incentive to help!
DCD allows the CIT's to fully participate in the program, and not just stand to the side and observe or interact when needed.
At Dedham Country Day Camp, we believe that summer time should reinforce the wonders of being a child, and the enduring joy of friendship. While we offer a broad range of activities from archery to woodworking, we also allow time in each day for the simple enjoyment of catching frogs in the stream, climbing trees and building forts in the pine grove.
DCD Camp Staff
Our experienced counselors range in age from 16-over 60. Though typically college juniors and seniors, our counselor staff includes college graduates, young teachers, and veteran teachers. Most of our counselors have worked their way up in the DCD Camp ranks from being a Counselor-in-Training (rising 10th graders), to being Head Counselors when they are in college.
All DCD Camp Staff members must submit personal references, as well as CORI and SORI screening before being hired. Parents have the right to review our background checks, health care, discipline and grievance procedures upon request. Lifeguards and Swim Instructors are required to be certified by the American Red Cross and have First Aid/CPR/AED training.
