D1

1st and 2nd Grade
Adventure around every corner!

This is the perfect place to send your campers who have just completed 1st and 2nd grade.  D1 is designed to bring out these campers’ sense of competition through wacky, fun, and exciting games that we have created just for them! At this age, D1 campers are beginning to explore their own identity while also learning to work well with others. Our amazing college-age counselors are ready to encourage and love each camper as we play games, debrief activities, discover skills, and talk about the one who created us. Come experience why people call CAA “the place to be” in D1!
