Camp Coddington is open to children entering Kindergarten through 9th grade. We also run Counselor-in-Training and Junior Counselor programs for adolescents 14 to 17 years old (click here for more information). Our campers are assigned by grade to a campsite at one of our outdoor pavilions. The sites are used for roll calls, snack, shelter, and special site meetings or activities.  Camp Coddington maintains a ratio of at least 1 counselor per 12 campers.  Their role is to guide, care for, and help children choose activities, get involved, and make new friends. Staff are supervised by the Camp Director.
