The Adventure Day Camp (for ages 5 years to 15 years) offers fun-filled days of games, crafts, swimming, and field trips to nearby attractions like Look Park and Laurel Lake.
The Junior Counselor program (for ages 13-15 years old) gives teenagers experience working with children and developing valuable job skills while still enjoying the fun of summer camp!
The Preschool Program (for ages 15 months to 4 years old) provides a safe, nurturing camp experience for our youngest campers. With busy days of crafts, water play, games, songs, and much more, our program promotes social and emotional growth and learning through play.
Enrichment Programs supplement a typical camp morning with a special program. Options include activities like swimming lessons, baking, and nature programs. New offerings will be posted throughout the winter and spring, so check back regularly!
Adventures in Chinese is a full-day program that teaches vocabulary and confidence in speaking Mandarin Chinese. Campers will gain a better understanding of Chinese art, culture, and tradition by practicing fundamental language skills and participating in traditional Chinese activities like calligraphy, brush painting, and cooking.
The Bement School’s English Language and American Culture Summer Program (students ages 7-13 years) for international students balances English language learning with immersion in American culture.
