Summer and vacation camps 
for kids and teens, located in Waltham, MA

Voyagers (Grades 5-7)

VOYAGERS offers campers who have completed 5th, 6th, or 7th-grade two-week sessions of both day and overnight trips. This program is for those who enjoy nature and are looking to challenge themselves with overnight camping and more extreme adventures. Voyagers are the intermediate group of the Adventures program. Groups will have day trips during the entire first week of the session and the start of the second week. Activities may include advanced hiking, biking, kayaking, rock climbing, volunteering, swimming, and canoeing. The session culminates in a two-night camping trip.

Note: Camping is a required component of the Voyagers session, so there is not an on-campus alternative. Hiking, biking, and kayaking/canoeing will also take place during each session. Please ensure that your camper is comfortable with these activities before signing up!
