An amazing experience your child will never forget!
Shine Day Camp is a summer experience for kids entering K-7th grade in the fall! Each week, kids will experience tons of high-energy large group and cooperative games, creative crafts, interactive technology, and engaging elective classes.

Fun gets crazy at Ultimate Tuesday events such as Color Wars, Wet N’ Wild water day, and The Amazing Race. Each week we will bring a fun and exciting field trip to camp!


Life doesn’t stop for you in the summer…and that’s where we come in.

Shine Day Camp strives to provide the highest quality & safest summer child care in the metro Detroit area. Housed on the beautiful campus of Ward Church in Northville, Michigan, Shine is a fully licensed day camp through the state of Michigan Licensing and Regulatory Affairs division and has been creating summer experiences for kids for more than 25 years. Our handpicked staff must complete a background check, health screening, and intensive training before joining our team of counselors. With care for each camper, your child will get the attention that they deserve.

Shine Day Camp is designed to fit your schedule. Got a doctors appointment? Attending another half-day camp? Want to sleep in? No problem, you can pick up and drop off your kids whenever you would like from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday.

Shine Day Camp is designed for a budget. We know you have loads of important things to spend your money on, so we do our BEST to keep prices as low as possible while still providing an unforgettable experience.

Field Trips

Each week at Shine, we will be bringing a fun and exciting field trip to us!

Ultimate Tuesdays

Every Tuesday we go BIG before you go home! We pull out all the stops to give your child the ULTIMATE experience!


Parents, don’t worry about packing a snack in case your kids get hungry throughout the day. At Shine we provide a morning and afternoon snack for everyone, everyday.


Who says you can’t have fun and learn at the same time? Each week at Shine your child will get to choose one of our engaging elective classes. Past electives include: Art explosion, cartoon drawing, Pom Pon, STOMP, Culture Exploration, Unicycling, Lacrosse, Fun with Foods, Book Club, Tech Madness, Photography, Gymnastics and many more!


It’s easy to forget about school during the summer, but at Shine we are passionate about making sure your child is ready for the fall. Every week the Nutty Scientests will be teaching science with a hands-on approach.

Activity Stations

Summers weren’t meant to be experienced from inside a building. Favorite stations from last year include gaga ball, tetherball, volleyball, nine square in the air, and can jam.


Every Friday afternoon we pop popcorn and we wind down the week by watching a movie together. Campers get to spend rings that they have earned throughout the week at our Fun Friday Store that is full of great prizes!

Experience Partners

Nutty Scientists

Since 1996, children around the world have benefited from the Nutty Scientists® method for learning through experimentation, participation, and most of all – fun! We are thrilled to have the Nutty Scientists be a part of our weekly program this year! This will provide every child in our program with the chance to be inspired by science!
