Day Campers  get all of the same quality instruction as Overnight Campers to expand their skills and improve their game.  For campers who may be wary of staying overnight this provides the perfect opportunity to fall in love with the camp, try a Friday overnight, and come back for the Overnight version!

Overnight Campers receive 

high quality instruction in their sport from caring and skilled coaches, giving them a unique opportunity to expand their skills and improve their game.  Staying overnight provides campers the opportunity to receive more individualized coahcing in their sport, enjoy more traditional camp experiences and build strong relationships with teammates and build lasting friendships with peers who share their love of their sport. 

 

OVERNIGHT CAMP

DAY CAMP

ACTIVITIES

 

Campers will enjoy our beautiful 32–acre facility located on the shores of McGrath Pond.  Paddle Boarding, Canoeing, Archery, Swimming, Climbing Wall, Many High and Low Ropes Course Elements all complement the sports training.  As campers learn best from a well rounded  and varied experience your child will not only receive skills in his or her sport, but will have recreation time to learn a new activity, build camaraderie, and play in the lake!

SAMPLE SCHEDULE

 

Day campers will be checked out at Fenway after night game.  Friday pick up at 5PM for both Overnight and Day campers.
