Smitty's Camp

Smitty’s Camp has been licensed and in operation by the same family for almost 40 years! The facility began as a small in-home center and has grown over the years to become the outstanding campus that we offer today. Smitty’s Camp consists of acres of green grass, a lake, an in-ground pool, a ball diamond, sports field, and lots of room to run and play and just be a kid! Although we have grown over the years, we still maintain that “loving, family atmosphere” and the campers return year after year to see Ms. Michele, Ms. Linda, Granddaddy, and all of the counselors who come back to work with us each summer. For almost 40 years, Smitty’s has given thousands of children camp experiences and friendships that they will cherish for a lifetime.
