A note from the Camp Director

Welcome to Renbrook School Summer Adventure’s 48th summer! Our desire at RSSA is to create a place where campers can learn and friendships can grow. Camp is about developing life skills that help children build and maintain positive relationships, learn about the differences in others, and feel confident in the person they are becoming.

Each summer, our staff is selected for their maturity, character and leadership capabilities, as well as their desire to be positive role models and mentors to our campers. Many of our staff were campers here and have been through our extensive leadership training programs. 
Our camp programs are designed with the whole child in mind, and always with a focus on providing opportunities for campers to: 

Explore new experiences through our wide variety of learning and fun-filled activities - all while making new friends!  
Excite their curiosity as they find new passions and interests on our beautiful and boundless campus.  
Engage in safe, challenging, and most importantly, FUN programs with our experienced and dedicated staff.  
 
Of course, we will continue to meet each summer with enthusiasm and excitement while keeping the health and safety of our camp community at the forefront. We regularly monitor guidance from the CT Department of Public Health and OEC and follow all current standards and guidelines. We hope you will partner with us this summer to provide a high-quality camp experience for your child. This website will answer many of your questions about our programming and camp day, and we will continue to provide additional updates as summer approaches. Please feel free to reach out with questions at any time. We look forward to seeing you this summer! 

Sincerely,  
Dave Farrell

Hear about Renbrook School Summer Adventure from a camp parent...

"As a year-round preschool, elementary and middle school, Renbrook offers a tremendous summer program with incredible facilities and seasoned professionals intent on making camp safe and fun.  Summer Adventure feels like the day camp of my childhood – sing-songy and crafty, with drippy popsicles and lots of smiling, sweaty faces. Its just what I want for my kids in the summer – a time to explore and play in so many areas, without focusing on who’s winning or who’s scoring.  While the summer programs feel very campy and spirited (think slip and slide, Carnival and Olympic themed days and group skits), the facilities are far from rustic. Campers use nearly every part of the extensive campus, from the ceramics studio to the pond, with playgrounds, gaga pits, tennis courts and swimming pools in between."
