WELCOME TO WINDWOOD DAY CAMP
We are excited to announce the fun changes being made to the program this year. This summer we will be separating our existing program into three separate pods. Each pod will be provided the proper structured activities that fit the needs of each age group. The Early Years Program, The Young School Age Program, and the Preteen Program. Each program will be given its own schedule of activities and daily routines. Our Early Years Program will have the biggest changes and will have a separate drop off location from the other two programs. We are excited for the change and hope you are as well.
The summer day camp program will be presented to the children and supervised by professional, certified instructors and our experienced staff to ensure your child’s safe, fun, enriching summer. Windwood is situated on approximately 25 acres of some of Allegheny County’s most beautiful land. The present facilities include a large swimming pool with diving board, a children’s wading pool, a sport court area, basketball court, sandy beach volleyball court, deck hockey court, activity field, horseshoe pits, bocce ball court, lounging areas and covered pavilions.
Our Day Camp program operates Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We are aware that many working parents leave for work earlier and work a little later. As a convenience to them we will open our facilities from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Children may bring their own lunch or they may purchase a Lunch Ticket, that will be prepared by the Windwood Park Staff. The lunch ticket can be found on the website under the online forms tab. We will also provide campers with beverages throughout the day and snacks in the afternoon.
For further information regarding your child’s potential for a happy, healthful summer vacation we invite you to email or phone us and we will provide you with the information you require. We strongly feel that each and every camper will find Windwood Day Camp to be an entertaining and rewarding experience along with a helpful venture to parents.
Our Open House will take place Saturday, May 20, 2023, from 12:30p.m. until 2:30p.m. At this time, you and your child may come and meet some of the staff and also browse around our beautiful facility. If you need to reach us and we are not in the office, you can send us an email at email@example.com
