Day Camp: Ages 5-12
It's chilly outside but warm in our thoughts: camp registration opens for returning campers on January 19 and to all on January 21!

Circle of campers

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, taking part in athletic activities on the Boston Common or having a dance party at 74 Joy Street; 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 invited to swim in the deep end of the pool. All other campers are restricted to the pool’s shallow end. 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
