 *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 begin the gradual transition from camper to counselor. Each participant will take part in leadership workshops and one-on-one mentoring while planning, assisting with and evaluating activities at camp. LITs will help mentor campers,  assist counselors, and participate in community service throughout each three-week program. LITs will learn conflict resolution skills, develop and define their own leadership style, build confidence, and strengthen interpersonal skills that can be used at home, school and in the community – all under the supervision of the senior camp counselors and staff. Additionally, each cohort of LITs will plan and execute a community service team project during their program’s timeframe. It’s all not work, however, as summer is supposed to be fun too!  Our LIT's will benefit from some recreational time by participating in some traditional camp activities including swimming, sports, art, and field trips. 

LIT Program 1: Session 4, 5 and 6 (July 9 –  July 27) $600
LIT Program 2 : Session 7, 8 and 9 (July 30 – August 17) $600

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
