Summer Camps

* Please note that our pools are no longer on campus. Campers will travel off-campus twice a week to take advantage of our partner pools at Double Tree (Grades 1-2) or Wellesley Sports Center (Grades 3-9). Please click here and go to the "Pools and Swimming" tab to find out more. 

We offer 3 main types of camps each summer with each camp type offering multiple camp week choices.

  • Classic Camp:  (PreK thru Grade 9) Traditional day camp experience with rotating activities each day like Swimming, arts and crafts, painting, sculpture, sports, theater, dance, tennis, and archery. New Teen Camp offers more time for the activities our teens love as well as off-site trips.
  • Sports Camp: (Grades 5-12) Crew (new advanced crew and half days), Soccer, Basketball and Lacrosse.. Each camp week is dedicated to each sport with practice, drills, skills, and scrimmages through the week.
  • Specialty Camp: (Grade 2-10) Chess, Minecraft, Drones, Magic the Gathering, STEAM, Farm 2 Table/Eco Hike, Mastermind Adventures, Sew/Stitch, and CIT/LIT.... Specialty Camps are dedicated to a niche activity for a week of focused learning, play, and exploration for the inquisitive camper.
