NEW THIS YEAR! Divisions

To better serve the needs of the campers, we have merged our groups into age-based divisions. These divisions are named for birds of prey to align with Renbrook School’s mascot – Freddie the Hawk. Campers are placed into a division based on the grade that they will enter school in the Fall of 2018.

A note from the Camp Director

Welcome and thank you for thinking about Renbrook School Summer Adventure for your children's summer camp experience in 2018. I am Dave Farrell, the new Executive Director of Renbrook School Summer Adventure. This is an exciting time for me to join our excellent staff in this 44th year of Summer Adventure. I started my camping career in 1994, and over the last twenty-five years, I have worked, learned, and grown as a counselor and a director. As a result of those experiences, I can relate to your child’s needs in all types of camp activities, and we are constructing a camp this summer that will both develop a wide array of skills in your child and provide a safe, interesting, enjoyable, and well-rounded camp experience.
We are excited to bring some new ideas and activities to camp this summer including:

  • Early Literacy Development program for full-day preschool, junior kindergarten, and kindergarten campers
  • Transportation will be included in tuition
  • Marine Biology Specialty Week
  • High Adventure Specialty Week

The quality and variety of the activities, coupled with the small camper-to-staff ratio and our magnificent campus, combine to ensure a unique and memorable camp experience. From one of the most extensive ropes courses in New England to our state-of-the-art STEAM programs, we have activities and programs that will engage and inspire children of all ages from three-year-olds to those entering tenth grade.

I very much look forward to meeting you and your children and to sharing all that Renbrook School Summer Adventure has to offer.



Sincerely,
Dave Farrell

Executive Director of Renbrook School Summer Adventure
