What to Expect

Camp Fire Camp Toccoa Day Campers share the same fun and adventurous experiences as overnight campers and can still spend the night at home.  The day will be filled with making new friends and trying new things; campers will spend the day outdoors exploring out 176 acre facility.   At Camp Fire it’s more than just activities and play; all programs are outcome based.  With a safe and supportive environment, children can fully engage in activities, are provided with leadership opportunities and are supported in lifting their voice.  Youth are encouraged to explore their natural sense of curiosity and find their own sparks.

Owanyake Day Camp Schedule & Tiered Pricing Information

Our new tiered pricing structure will give us some added flexibility that we hope will allow anyone to attend camp without raising prices for everyone!   Please read each description before registering and pick the tier that best fits your families needs. This is strictly an honor system and in no way reflects the type of program your child will receive.  As always, we believe that no child should be turned away based on ability to pay therefore further financial assistance is available if needed. 

Owanyake Day Camp will be offered weekly from beginning June 11th-July 23rd.  Camp Fire Georgia will host Camp WoHeLo @ Doyle Street Park  May 29th-June1st and June 4th-8th to fill the gap between Stephens County Schools getting out and the start of Owanyake Day Camp.
