Hantesa Day Camp provides quality programming for campers entering grades 1-8. We provide transportation to Camp Hantesa from sites in Ames (Camp Canwita), Boone (McHose Park Shelter), Des Moines (Camp Fire Service Center), and Madrid (Edgewood Park). Each camper will be given two snacks and a hot lunch each day. Hantesa day campers also will receive swim lessons, utilizing the American Red Cross Learn to Swim program.
Camp is quiet, the cool air is about us, and we miss the laughter and smiles of our summer campers. While fall is a wonderful season to be at camp, we also like to reminisce about the fun times we had this summer. Check out some of the photos below!
