Camp Capacity

Summer Camp has a capacity of 25 children per day in order to maintain safe practices. This will allow us to maintain smaller group sizes within our program, safely staff each day, and transport children to and from field trips safely and responsibly.


In order to maintain adequate and consistent staffing, programming, and group sizes, schedule options will be limited to 3 choices: Monday through Friday, Monday, Wednesday & Friday, and Tuesday & Thursday. Children needing full time care (M-F) for more than 8 weeks out of the summer will be given top priority for enrollment. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday options will have next priority, and Tuesday & Thursday will follow suit. Anyone wishing to change their child’s schedule to a higher priority may do so, provided the program is not yet at capacity.


Our program offers as many activities outdoors as possible including games and walking excursions around town. Our daily programming will include art, science, reading, gross motor, and many more activities that support your child’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

We plan to attend 2 off site field trips per week including swimming, hiking, exploring, playing and much more! We take trips to Super Scoops, Mt. Sunapee State Park, Squam Lake Natural Science Center, McLane Audubon, Greenfield State Park, and much more. We change field trips each year to best meet the needs and interests of the children at our program!
