Children aged 5-12 will be engaged in an action-packed summer full of exciting outdoor activities and weekly field trips at Hill House Summer Camp. 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.
Campers will have choice time each day and given the opportunity to read, play board games, participate in art, cooking, sports or nature projects, among other activities. Swimmers who pass a swim test at the start of camp each week will be allowed to swim on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Sailing is offered at an additional cost.
