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.

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


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. From fun math and science to educational games and interactive technology, your child’s brain will stay engaged all summer.


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!


Want to keep your child active in math this Summer? We are excited to partner with Mathnasium, in Northville, to provide an exclusive math mind workout program for day campers this summer!  This special program will concentrate on introducing and practicing concepts that will be covered in the upcoming school year. Sessions for this program occur Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at Shine Day Camp and the cost is $65 a week.
