A Note From Renbrook School Summer Adventure
The RSSA team is excited to extend a warm welcome to both our returning camp families, as well as new camp families joining us for the first time. The summer of 2024 will mark Renbrook School Summer Adventure’s 50th year of camp – close to half a century of high-quality summer programming!
Our mission 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 themselves 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.
We encourage all campers to try new things because we know the value of a challenge. We all want to grow in big and small ways, and we strive to assist all campers in doing so. At RSSA, we understand the importance of keeping parents informed and in touch. We keep our parents updated via email, as well as posting pictures each day on our Facebook and Waldo pages. The pictures alone will show the wonderful day we had!
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!
Katy Fressola, Interim Director of RSSA Camp Operations

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. It's 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."
