Day Trekkers (Grades 4-5)

DAY TREKKERS offers campers who have completed 4th or 5th grade the opportunity to discover adventures in the greater Boston area in two-week sessions. This program is for those who are looking to test the waters with nature. Day Trekkers is an introductory group of the Adventures program. Activities may include rock climbing, biking, kayaking, hiking, beach days, and visiting the Boston Museum of Science. This program includes one night of camping on our Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall campus. Camping will take place on the second Thursday of each session.

Drop-off and pick-up will occur at Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall every day, except when campers are away for their overnight trip. Drop-off runs from 8:15am - 8:40am. The camp day runs from 8:55am - 3:25pm. Pick-up runs from 3:30pm - 4:00pm. When a group leaves for a camping trip, it returns in time for dismissal on Friday. Bus and Extended Day options are also available!
