A Summer You'll Never Forget
Since 1973 Camp Greenway has been the summer home for boys and girls in rising K-10th grades. Camp Greenway is a traditional day camp and campers will participate in different, age-appropriate activities every day and special all-camp activities every week. Campers will build community, participate in special traditions, play outside, and have fun the way summer was meant to be. Explore this page to get a better understanding of what your camper can expect from Camp Greenway.

Detailed instructions about the carpool process will be emailed to you before the start of summer and camp staff will be available every day to help the carpool process along. Drop off is between 8:15 am - 9:00 am and pick up is from 3:15 pm – 3:45 pm. If you arrive any time after the stated drop off or pick up time, you will have to go to the camp office to do a late drop off/pick up. Every family will be provided with a carpool placard. To help carpool be as smooth and fast as possible, please bring this every day with your camper’s name written on it.
We offer Extended Day care for all our day campers from 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm every day for a fee (details to come). Caregivers may pick their camper up any time within that timeframe. Extended Day programming includes a snack, games, crafts, and one extra swim block per week. A late fee of $25/camper is incurred if caregivers fail to pick up their camper by 5:30 pm. Late fees increase on a sliding scale based on time of pick up.
Madeira Camps value the health and safety of all campers and employees. As the Madeira School continues to navigate the impacts of COVID-19, we continue to update our protocols and practices.

- If a camper has COVID, they should stay home and follow VDH guidance.
- If a camper is COVID-negative AND is not feeling well enough to come to camp (vomiting, fever), they should stay home.
