 *Introducing our Leadership in Training program for 13-15 year olds!

NHill House is proud to offer a LIT program for the first time! This program is designed for 13-15 year olds    who wish to transition from camper to counselor.  Partcipants will have the opportunity to observe and participate in the planning and execution of a successful and fun day camp! This is fantastic way to develop self confidence and practice valuable leadership skills through experience and discussion. Participants will learn conflict resolution skills, responsibility, teamwork and more under the supervision of senior camp staff and counselors. 
Sessions, dates and prices TBA

Day Camp Picture 2017 5

New and experienced campers alike can join us for an action-packed summer full of exciting outdoor activities and weekly field trips. Whether they are making creating artistic masterpieces at the Firehouse, swimming in the outdoor pool at the Clubs at Charles River Park, playing field games on the Teddy Ebersol's Red Sox Fields; your camper will find something new to enjoy every day!

Each Monday, Day Campers will take a swimming test. If campers pass the test, they are free to swim Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at the pool. All other campers have the option to wear a life jacket or go to the Alfond Spray Deck by the esplanade. The pool is staffed by American Red Cross certified lifeguards in addition to Hill House’s team of summer staff.

 
“I heard countless stories about her exciting day the moment I picked her up. From the sports camp, the field trips, the Friday Festivals, the themes, the games, the swimming, the laughs, the friends she made and especially the counselors, I couldn't tell what she loved the most.” –Parent of a Day Camper, age 8
