Camp Sewataro offers traditional day camping for kids aged 3-15. The family-run day camp was founded in 1960 on the belief that every child benefits physically, socially, and emotionally from being exposed to a broad range of experiences in a safe environment with a strong connection to nature. Campers are exposed to a beautiful wooded setting, swimming in ponds and pools, boating, zip lining, climbing a rock wall, golf, tennis, paint ball, music, and many other activities. The nine-week day camp season runs throughout summer.
The programs are diverse and structured, designed to foster values such as sportsmanship, fair play and cooperation. This encourages teamwork and self-confidence and campers develop a belief that they have something valuable to offer others. Activities are mostly outdoor-focused, away from screens and technology.
A weekly half-day experience is available for girls and boys aged 3-5.
Many staff members have made a long term commitment to Sewataro and over 75% return each summer. Staff is comprised of teachers, college students studying for a teaching career, and people who have chosen to devote themselves to enriching children’s lives.
Campers bring their own lunch and each group eats a picnic together. Nuts and nut products are not allowed at the camp.
Bus service is available for an additional fee. Towns served currently include: Acton, Arlington, Bedford, Belmont, Boston, Brookline, Cambridge, Charlestown, Concord, Framingham, Hudson, Lexington, Lincoln, Maynard, Natick, Newton, Somerville, Southborough, Stow, Sudbury, Wayland, Wellesley, Westborough, Weston, and Winchester.
