Steeped in 85 years of tradition, Landon Summer’s Boys Day Camp (BDC) utilizes the school’s beautiful 75-acre campus to deliver a program with activities that boys love best. Activities include instructional swim, baseball, soccer, archery, riflery, woodshop and more. There is an 8-to-1 camper-to-counselor ratio, and specialized, experienced coaches for each activity ensure fun for every participant. Campers are grouped by age and friend requests will be accommodated when possible. They have the opportunity to take field trips and enjoy special events that take them off-campus. Our camp traditions — including the Bow and Arrow Competition, Water Olympics and the Penny Carnival — keep campers coming back year after year. Summer camp at Landon means boys play hard all day long... and sleep well at night!

Sun safety at our Day Camps is always a top priority, so we will be providing all campers in our Preschool, Girls, and Boys Day Camps with sunscreen for reapplication during the day. We partner with Rocky Mountain Sunscreen, which has been servicing summer camps for over 15 years. If you prefer to send your child with his/her own sunscreen, please contact the Camp Office and we will alert the group counselors. Please note, we still ask that you apply sunscreen to your child in the morning before coming to camp!
Landon Summer Grill

Sage currently services Landon School and offers a nut-free menu with vegetarian and gluten-free options. This box lunch option is available every Wednesday to children in the Preschool, Girls and Boys Day Camps only. Lunches cost $6.50 and may be purchased through our online registration program. Lunches are pre-boxed and delivered directly to your child’s camp.
