Adventures FAQs

We have provided answers to the more commonly asked questions below but, as always, please contact the camp office if you need more information.

List of 8 frequently asked questions.

  • Q. What are the camp hours of operation?

    The camp runs from 8:15 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day, Monday through Friday during the on-campus portion of the session. When a group leaves for a camping trip, it returns for dismissal at 3:45 p.m. on Friday. 
    Please note that dismissal on the last day of camp (August 18) will be at 2pm instead of 3:45.
  • Q. What are the Extended Day hours?

    We offer both morning (7:15 a.m. - 8:15 a.m.) and afternoon (4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.) Extended Day. Please contact our office with additional questions.
  • Q. What do campers need to bring to camp each day?

    In a confirmation packet you receive after enrolling, there will be a letter detailing this information. This applies to the overnight trips as well.
  • Q. Does the camp supply lunch?

    Each camper needs to bring her/his own non-refrigerated lunch, drink and snack each day during the day-trip portion of the session. For overnight camping trips, campers need their lunch for the first day of the trip and snack money. The camp supplies the food for the remainder of the trip.
  • Q. Where do the campers go for their day trips?

    The day trip sites (for example, rock climbing) are all within a one-hour drive from camp. The overnight camping sites are located throughout New England and the Northeast.
  • Q. How many kids go on the trips?  How will I know if the trip will run?

    Each Adventures trip can accommodate a maximum of 13 campers.  There are two staff for every trip.  In order to provide participants with a rewarding group experience, each trip will require a minimum number of campers (typically 6-7 or more) in order to run. If a trip is going to be cancelled, families of registered campers will be notified by April 1.
