On Campus and Online Camps from Catlin Gabel for Every Interest and Every Age
At Catlin Gabel, summer camps are taught by teachers who love what they do, whether that camp takes place on the school’s 67-acre wooded campus or from the comfort of your home. These camps, which run from June 28-August 13, provide a range of activities to select from, including academics, arts, sports, day camps, and more. Camps are intentionally designed for specific age ranges, from preschool (age 4) to high school, with before- and after-care available for those who are between 6 and 14 years of age.
Day Camps for Ages 4-11
A perennial favorite is Catlin Gabel’s day camps, known as the “Summer Beehive” (ages 4-5); “Honey Hollow Adventure” (ages 6-8); and “Explorers” (9-11). These camps are offered each week and allow campers to immerse themselves in games, art, and music both inside classrooms and outside among the trees. Campers will use real hand-powered tools in the wood shop, take apart electronics to create a new 3-D invention, create art using all sorts of materials, work outside in the Catlin Gabel gardens, and run through sprinklers on a hot day. Each week explores a different theme to provide a specific focus, but there are always a number of activities to take part in.
Academic and Special Interest Camps
For campers wanting to strengthen their academic knowledge before next fall, there are academic camps for mathematics and English, including a camp designed especially for writing college essays. There are also numerous camps designed with a specific interest in mind. Campers who like science and engineering can build contraptions and test them, using all sorts of materials from those found at home to Legos. There are camps to explore artistry, through painting, photography, music, and fashion.
For those who want to be active, one of the many weekly sports camps allow campers to be outside to engage in general games and challenges, such as basketball, soccer, volleyball, and ultimate frisbee or to strengthen specific skill sets, including fencing.
Catlin Gabel’s camp Covid-19 health and safety protocols mirror those put in place when the school began its transition to on-campus hybrid learning in early February. All Catlin Gabel staff will be trained to implement these practices, and all families who register for an on-campus camp will complete a daily health screening form.
Don’t miss out! Many of these camps fill fast. Camp costs range from $135 for a full week online to $390 for the on-campus experience. To learn more and to register, go to Catlin.edu/summer.
