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 boys and girls in rising first grade through rising seventh grade on two campuses. Little Harding camp for twos, threes, fours and fives is available for students enrolled at Harding Academy. 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. There is no registration fee for Sport Camps or LEAP Camps; however, the camp fee must be paid in full upon registration. Please read the policies and procedures for Summer @ Harding. (Campers registered for Day Camp will receive a Welcome Letter by email. Letters will also be available at the bottom of this page.)
