We’re refreshing programs and boosting capacity on the heels of last summer’s unprecedented wait lists. Check out what’s already in store, and sign up to be among the first to know when open enrollment begins. We can’t wait to see you next year!
Hale Day Camp
Hale Day Camp features traditional activities in four age-based divisions tailored to their developmental needs. For enrollment, note these are “rising” grade ranges; in other words, campers should be entering these grades next fall.
Hale Adventure Camp
Hale Adventure Camp features four levels of challenge that build outdoor skills and include travel opportunities. Campers also enjoy traditional camp activities such as archery, boating, climbing, and swimming.
Hale Mountain Biking Camp
Hale Mountain Biking Camp focuses on skill-building and ride time. Campers execute drills, increase endurance, and learn about bike maintenance and trail stewardship in our private skills park and beyond.
Our Counselor-in-Training Program (Ages 14–15) develops communication, problem-solving, and leadership skills among Hale’s next generation of counselors. Senior counselors coach these aspiring role models during multi-session blocks throughout the summer. CITs participate in professional development, teambuilding, and challenge course activities and are embedded with camp groups to observe program operations in action.
Hale gladly provides free bus service* with stops in Brookline, Dedham, Dover, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, Medfield, Milton, Needham, Newton, Norwood, West Roxbury, and Westwood.
A camp staff member accompanies each bus for the duration of its route and ensures your camper’s safe journey to and from camp each day. Please note that you or an authorized adult must meet your camper at your designated bus stop each afternoon.
Campers may sign up for bus service at the time of registration. Buses serve campers during regular camp hours (8:45 AM–3:45 PM). Campers who remain at Hale after 3:45 PM for Extended Day are responsible for coordinating their own transportation.
*Please note that any camper who registers for bus service may be subject to a transportation surcharge of $130 per camper, per session should public health protocols limit passenger capacities at that time.
As we all return to leading more active lives, we’re pleased to include one 2022 Hale Membership per camp family (a $120 value) with registration. Valid from Mar. 1, 2022–Feb. 28, 2023, your membership features complimentary parking throughout the year, discounts on activities, and a copy of Hale Magazine.
We’re also pleased to once again offer installment billing to make paying for camp more manageable—the sooner you enroll, the lower your monthly payment will be. A deposit will hold your camper’s spot until the balance is automatically paid in equal monthly installments. And you can always save the most if you choose to pay in full.
This year’s refund policy is even more flexible. All payments—deposits and additional payments—are fully refundable until Jan. 31, 2022.
Whether you opt for installment billing or choose to save even more by paying in full, your account balance will be settled by May so you and your camper can focus on what’s most important as summer approaches: camp!
