Information Sessions

Because we needed to cancel our open house this past Sunday, we are offering two alternate times for families to come visit and learn more about our programs: Tuesday, February 14 from 9 AM to 10 AM, and Thursday, February 16 from 3 PM to 4 PM. 

Both gatherings will take place on our campus at 785 Beaver St., in East Hall. We ask that you either email or call the Camp office to RSVP: 781-314-0994, or runningbrookcamp@chch.org. We hope to see you soon.
Summer and vacation camps 
for kids and teens, located in Waltham, MA
Our Adventures camp offers exciting day trips and camping experiences for youth and teens between the ages of 9-16.  Our program is divided into different co-ed age groups, with a variety of awesome destinations and overnight trips of varying durations.  Trips are co-ed, with two to three counselors per group, combining on and off-campus adventure activities throughout New England and other Northeastern states.

Our Age Groups

 
DAY TREKKERS offers 9-11 year olds the opportunity to discover off-campus adventures in the greater Boston area in one-week sessions.  Activities may include hiking, biking, kayaking, rock climbing, volunteering, swimming, canoeing and more. When signing up, campers can choose a one-week session that is comprised exclusively of day trips (with one extra special activity each week) or 3 days of day trips followed by a one night camping trip (Thurs-Fri).
 
VOYAGERS offers 11-13 year olds two-week sessions of both day and overnight trips to destinations like the Berkshires, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Maine.  Groups will have day trips during the entire first week of the session and the start of the second week.  Activities may include hiking, biking, kayaking, rock climbing, volunteering, swimming and canoeing. The session culminates in a two or three night camping trip, depending on the session chosen.
 
EXPLORERS offers even greater adventures than our Day Trekkers and Voyagers groups. Campers ages 13-16 have a number of exciting two-week options with a week-long/four night camping trip as part of the session! Campers leave the Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall campus with their two counselors for daily activities the first week. Day trips around greater Boston may include snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, biking, rock climbing, volunteering and the beach. They return to campus in the afternoon in time to go home at the end of the regular camp day.  Groups depart Monday of the second week for their camping trip, and return Friday afternoon.

The first Adventures session begins on June 26, 2017. The summer schedule is packed with both indoor and outdoor adventures, new destinations and activities for each group!

We invite you to step outside and join us for an unforgettable Adventures experience this summer!
