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

Vacation Week Day Camp (ages 5-10)

Our Running Brook Day Camp February and April vacation camps are for kids in grades K-4. Campers will be sub-divided into co-ed groups based on their current age, with each group having a maximum of 20 campers. There will be a minimum of three of our staff members with each group throughout the day. Our great staff are comprised of group counselors and specialists, most of whom have worked with us in our summer programs. Campers will enjoy many of the same favorite activities from the summer, including woodshop, creative movement, drama, sports, cooperative games, self-defense & arts and crafts. We will also have daily outdoor play time, and campers will be provided snack and lunch through our dining services program.
The program will run from Monday through Friday. Given that the Monday of each of the school vacation weeks is a holiday, we will be prorating the tuition for families of campers who will not be joining us on Monday. Drop-off each day will be between 8:15 a.m. and 8:45 a.m., and pick-up will be between 3:40 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. We will be offering both morning (7:15-8:15 a.m.) and afternoon (4:00-6:00 p.m.) extended day options, but will not be offering bus service for these weeks.  Please click the "Tuition and Discounts" button for information on our fees.
“Running Brook is our daughter's absolute favorite place to be. She comes home every day happy and excited about the day's activities.  All year long we count down the days until ‘Running Brook time’. Thanks for everything you do!”
