A note from the Camp Director

Welcome to Renbrook School Summer Adventure’s 47th year! We know Summer 2021 will be one to remember! Our programs will provide your camper with opportunities 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. 
 
We are ready to meet Summer 2021 and are keeping the health and safety of our camp community in the forefront as we develop our plans. We are closely monitoring unfolding guidance from the Department of Public Health and we are prepared to incorporate the following strategies into our health and safety plan as necessary: 
  • Masking and sanitizing 
  • Social Distancing 
  • Cohorts with a maximum of 10 campers with 1-2 counselors
     
With months of safe, in-person teaching and learning under our belts at Renbrook School, we feel confident we can conduct the fun and exciting camp experience that we long for. We will model our Summer Adventure plan after the comprehensive Renbrook School COVID-19 Plan, and we are committed and ready to adapt as needed to meet the demands of this summer. We are looking to 2021 with excitement and fond memories of summers past. We are READY to get back to camping!  
 
We intend to open registration for summer 2021 by the end of January. Stay tuned for updates on our plans and programs. Please feel free to reach out with questions at any time. 

Sincerely, 
Dave Farrell 
Executive Director of Renbrook School Summer Adventure

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."
