Summer and vacation camps 
for kids and teens, located in Waltham, MA
We believe that there are two key ingredients to the wonderful summer experiences that kids have had with us at for over twenty-five years: safety and fun.

Our goal is for kids to take on new challenges, to try things they haven’t tried before, and to be open to forming new relationships. In order for any of this to happen, they need to feel safe - both physically and emotionally. And of course, we want our campers to have tons of fun while they are growing with us!
For the Summer 2022 season, we are offering enrollment in two-week sessions.

So how do we do this?

  • Hiring a highly experienced and energetic group of counselors and specialists
  • Maintaining a low camper-to-staff ratio, which allows us to build strong connections within groups
  • Creating a structured and consistent schedule with a wide variety of activities
  • Sprinkling in special events and group performances to celebrate as a camp community
  • Striving to maintain a non-competitive, relaxed, positive, and stress-free environment
  • Focusing on our core values at all times: celebration, community, challenge, creativitycompassion, and cooperation!
We hope you will join our community this season. Please reach out if you have questions, or if you and your child would like to come visit us to learn more about the wonderful opportunities that Running Brook Camps has to offer.
