2017 Day Camp

Welcome to Harding's I love 901! Summer Day Camp. We will emphasize simple acts of kindness each day. Our goal is to affect people in our homes, neighborhoods, and community. No act of kindness is too small. Everyone can be kind. Everyone can make a difference! Every Monday we will challenge each camper to have a "kindness" goal for the week. If we all do one random act of kindness daily, we might set the world in the right direction!

I love 901! Summer Day Camp is open to the community for students entering first through seventh grade on two campuses. Camp will run from June 5 through August 4.  Register by May 1 and get half off your registration.

A one-time non-refundable registration fee per camper must be paid for Summer Day Camp. Then each week, the Day Camp fee must be paid in full prior to the week attending. Please read the policies and procedures for Summer @ Harding.
