Gaylord Day Camp Camp Sylvan

Gaylord Day Camp:


Treetops Camp Sylvan the One and Only Nature Based Summer Day Camp in Gaylord

Camp Sylvan is the longest running summer day camp in Gaylord, Michigan. It was established in 1991 over two decades ago. Children ages 5 to 12 years of age have been making memories here ever since. 

"I wanted to take a moment this afternoon to let you know how impressed I am with the summer camp program Camp Sylvan. I've told the staff members how awesome I think they are doing from planning the activities to just how well they handle the kids. I can tell when we walk in the door in the morning that the staff is genuinely happy to see Dylan and the other kids. At the end of the day when most of us are ready to clock out and no longer deal with our customers, these ladies are still smiling, talking, playing, and enjoying the kids. There is no sense of frustration when I walk inside which amazes me. To handle that many children every day - that takes not only a lot of talent but also true passion for children and people and extreme patience. Then to turn around and put the time and effort into planning the caliber of activities and trips - amazing! Thank you for your time but more importantly, thank you for running such a wonderful program and having such an outstanding staff!"  Tina H. 7/26/17

Camp Open House!

Please join us for our annual Camp Sylvan Open House April 18th at Camp Sylvan, (Halfway Cafe) from 4:30-7:30. This is a perfect time for parents to check out camp and reserve their child’s spot at camp, and to ask or address any questions you may have.

We will also be attending Family Fun Fair located at the Gaylord Middle School on Saturday April 21 from 10am-2pm. Again we will offer lots of info and have packets ready available for parents to sign kids up for either the Childcare Center & Preschool or Camp Sylvan.

We maintain a simple, successful camp philosophy

Camp Sylvan campers are offered opportunities for personal growth, leadership, and team building. In doing so we promote educational activities that are fun and help campers gain skills in development as well as increase a positive self-image.

Each camper will engage in arts & crafts, science, team games, sports, cooking, music and so much more. To top it off Camp Sylvan takes regular field trips that are active, educational, and fun.

Our experienced and knowledgeable camp counselors will assist your child in the many activities offered her at Treetops. We encourage participation from all fellow campers and promote a strict No-Bullying Policy. All Staff are CPR/First Aid certified. Camper’s fun is how we measure our success year after year.
