Meadowbrook Summer Programs
Open to children in kindergarten through age 12 ½, this coeducational camp offers a group-centered approach and a multitude of fun and educational activities. The camp was founded in 1950 and is accredited by the American Camping Association. Meadowbrook’s planned program is designed to provide campers with a variety of activities each day in a safe, nurturing and fun atmosphere. The camper’s day is balanced with activities that emphasize social, physical, and emotional growth and learning. The program’s design varies according to age level and scheduling is kept flexible. Each day, campers are offered some degree of choice and are encouraged to participate in all areas of the program. All activities are presented with an eye toward encouraging and supporting each camper’s feeling of personal satisfaction. Teen Tripping was created especially for teenagers who have completed the 7th or 8th grade, offering well-supervised day trips in week-long increments. Some weeks include an overnight camping trip. Teen Tripping is the perfect solution for kids who have outgrown traditional camp but still need adventure and guidance. Teen Trippers get to choose a week of exploration that appeals to their interests. In groups of no more than 13, teens have fun while learning leadership, teamwork and problem-solving skills. Past day trips have included sea kayaking on the North or South Shore, canoeing on the Charles River, scuba diving in a pool, indoor skydiving, mountain climbing, ropes course and fly fishing. Mazemakers is a small, dynamic learning community for children in 2nd through 8th grades. In contrast to traditional summer programs, Mazemakers emphasizes choice, challenges and community-building. The Mazemakers program embraces innovation and creativity, problem-solving and trust. Campers get to choose from a wide range of courses such as: art, architecture, athletics games, creative writing, computer game design, dance, digital photography, digital music, drama, Mazematics, robotics, science, video, and Web design. There is a daily swimming option as well as tennis two or three times per week.
