Sleepaway Week

Optional Program for Campers Entering 3rd-8th Grades

At Shibley, campers have the best of both worlds – day camp with a sleepaway option! Senior campers entering 3rd grade and older can choose to take part in our annual Sleepaway Week. We know that sleepaway camp is the next step for some of our families, and we love to give our campers a taste of what they can expect when they are ready to take the leap.
