Varsity Day Camp is PAUSED!

Due to the effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision not to open Camp for our 2022 Season.

The safety, protection and well being of your children and our staff has always been of the utmost importance to us. It drives our every decision.

We want our existing Camp families to know that if you receive this email, you are on our contact list! For any prospective families, friends, neighbors please send your contact info/name & email to: This will add you to our top contact list.

Going toward Varsity’s reopening in June of 2023, we will begin sending informative emails in early January, 2023.

Varsity Day Camp and the Wisniewski Family thank you for your continued support!

Varsity Day Camp has been privately owned and operated since 1950. The camp is located about 18 miles from Ann Arbor in Hamburg Township, Livingston County. Camp Activities are conducted on a 40-acre site located 1/2 mile south of M-36 on Cordey Lake Road on the west shore of Cordey Lake.

Rates and Polices

The camp tuition fee includes lunch, insurance, arts & crafts supplies, all activities and instruction. Campers may register for any combination of days.

Tuition rate:
$45.00 per camper per day, or $225.00/camper/week

To secure your child's place, at the end of the registration process, you will be invoiced for a one-time, per-family, per year $25 administration fee plus the first week's tuition.

By June 1st, 50% of the remaining balance for the summer must be paid. Thereafter, each successive week's tuition must be paid no later than the Thursday prior to the Monday's attendance. Your child may not attend camp on days unpaid for.

☆☆☆ We are a flexible registration day camp! ☆☆☆

We do welcome registrations for the following day. However, registration must be completed and paid for by 9 PM the night before the next days attendance. Children may not attend without the days being paid for by 9 PM the night before.
