Day Camps 2021
Explore, Experiment & Discover!
2021 DAY CAMP UPDATE:
Ordinarily, we announce the schedule for our Hildene Youth Corps and summer camp programs in February. Since much remains uncertain with the evolving pandemic, we have not yet made any decisions regarding our summer youth programming. We expect to be able to share our plans with you in March, with the same excitement and enthusiasm we’ve always had. It is our nature to be optimistic. In the meantime, let’s look forward together to better times and a renewed sense of well-being!
Camp-in-a-Box!, our Alternative for SUMMER 2020: Hildene’s educators created an alternative for the 2020 summer camp cycle, literally putting camp in a box. Designed for children entering first through sixth grade, the Camp-in-a-Box themes included Plants and Pollinators, Ponds and Wetlands, Forests and Farm Day. Favorite investigations and activities were chosen, and all the necessary equipment and any special materials needed were included in the box, so children were prepared to explore themes in depth, with their caregivers. Camp-in-a-Box provided all the tools needed to have fun, learn together, and peak a child’s curiosity, while discovering the simple wonders of the natural world!
Hildene's staff and summer camp educators missed the joy and excitement that campers always brought to Hildene throughout the summer. Until we are able to be together again, the Camp-in-a-Box alternative will now be available as one way to engage in the excitement of summer. (Further details below.) Questions?
