Campers create artistic masterpieces at the Firehouse, swim in the outdoor pool at the Clubs at Charles River Park, play field games on the Teddy Ebersol’s Red Sox Fields, and find something new to enjoy every day!  Weekly sessions are offered from June through August. Hill House also offers a half-day Kiddie Kamp for children aged 3-5 years.
