Orton Park Camp is a day camp for children going into kindergarten through going into 5th grade sponsored by Big Oak Childcare. Each week there are 36 openings for children. We are a state licensed and city accredited child care facility. Our daily operations are out of Orton Park at 1114 Rutledge St, Madison, WI 53703.
In order to get to field trips and the beach, we walk and ride public transportation. This physical component is in addition to daily recreational swimming at BB Clarke Beach. 3rd-5th graders can become Junior Counselors this summer! They fulfill different activities in order to earn this certificate. Younger groups benefit from Junior Counselors reading to them, setting up obstacle courses, leading art activities, and more!
We welcome and strive to meet the needs of all campers. Campers with any disabilities or additional needs may require more attention than our staff is able to provide on its own. We ask that families clearly indicate needs in the "message" on the registration e-mail so that we may talk with parents directly. Failure to provide accurate information may result in our being unable to serve your child when camp begins. Orton Park Camp reserves the right to remove any camper from the program whose behavior is deemed unacceptable. No refunds will be given.
*Due to state licensing rules, inclement weather may affect field trip occurrence.
