Camp Wentzville provides a safe environment for children (ages 6-12) to enjoy the summer months making new friends, learning and having adventures!  This day camp is a perfect setting for your child to learn, grow, make friends and build life skills. Each week we provide new activities centered around the theme for that week that keep campers looking forward to each day. Our structured program includes a variety of interactive activities, field trips, special guests and camp-wide competitions.

Camp Wentzville is held Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. except for the week of July 1 which is three days. Sunrise and Sunset Camps provide before and after care after Camp Wentzville’s regular hours. These camps are only available for those campers already registered for Camp Wentzville. Sunrise Camp runs from 7-9 a.m. and Sunset Camp runs from 4-6 p.m. 

Make your day just a bit easier by taking advantage of the camp lunch program. Lunch includes an entrée, two healthy side items and a drink. If you would like to order lunch for your child, the cost is $5 per meal and will need to be ordered prior to 9 a.m. on the day of; if requesting lunch after 9 a.m. the cost is $6. A snack each day of the week is automatically included in all Camp Wentzville registrations this year. Registration for lunch will become available for residents on Feb. 15 and nonresidents on March 1. It can be completed by clicking here or calling (636) 332-9236. The menu can be found here.

Camp Wentzville recognizes the importance of water safety and therefore includes swim lessons for all campers. On days that campers are not in swim lessons or on a field trip, they will enjoy free swim at Progress Park Pool. To determine your child's swim level, please see the  Swim Level Guide. Children, regardless of age or skill level, will be required to complete the swim test each day to grant them access to swim in the deep end.

As an added bonus, we also include a skill-building skating activity catered to the age and skill level of those participating, as well as  skating lessons and free skate at the Wentzville Ice Arena for every camper in each week of camp.
