Summer Camp at The Well School

We know how to have fun, and nothing exemplifies our spirit like our summer camp programs! We aim to extract every bit of excitement and adventure from the long summer days. 

Our camps draw from the The Well's outstanding faculty and extended community for its talented, experienced, and energetic staff. Camp director Jay Garrett-Larsen has more than 30 years of summer camp experience. He is also the Third Grade teacher at The Well.  

See descriptions of camp options below.

  • All camps run from 9 am to 3 pm Monday through Friday.

Young Explorers

1-week camp sessions running from June 18-29 and July 9-August 10, 2018
(no camp week of July 2)
Ages 3-7

In 2018 we're combining our Young Explorers camps and our former Sprouts childcare program into a seven-week program for ages 3 to 7. Children will be split into two age groups (3- and 4-year-olds, 5- to 7-year-olds) each with their own teacher and age-appropriate activities. Days will be filled with outdoor play, crafts, games, short hikes on campus, and water play.

Children enrolled in Young Explorers should come to camp with their own lunch, snacks, and water bottle; suncreen and bug spray; a towel and bathing suit; and a hat and sturdy sneakers or sandals. A set of spare clothes is also recommended. Each child will have a cubby in which to store their belongings for the week. 


Theater Camp

July 9-20, 2018
Ages 7-14

Thirty aspiring actors, dancers and singers gather for two weeks of intense musical theater excitement. Campers take part in all phases of production--from costumes to lighting and sound to acting--to stage a full-length original show and then bask in the applause of their parents, friends and fans on show night. 


Outdoor Adventure

July 23-August 3, 2018
Ages 7-12

Campers spend their mornings in small groups, playing games, learning kayaking strokes, hiking, animal tracking, building forts, exploring the woods and pond, and more. Afternoons are filled with activities such as swimming, paddling in local ponds, arts and crafts, and berry picking.

Weekly field trips have included Odiorne Point State Park, Mount Cardigan, Squam Lake Science Center, and Mount Monadnock.

Campers have the option of attending an overnight camp-out on campus, a highlight for many kids. Campers make memories and forge friendships that last a lifetime. Register below.

Acting, Art & Adventure (FULL)

August 6-10, 2018
Ages 7-12

This camp offers some of the best aspects of The Well School. Campers create beautiful art projects, hone their singing, dancing, and acting skills, and dive into outdoor adventures. This camp is a wonderful way to close out a fun-filled summer. Campers leave with pieces of art, memories and new friends. 


For all camps, children should bring their own lunch, snacks, and water bottle. For the Outdoor Adventure and Acting, Art, & Adventure camps, campers should also pack a bathing suit and towel, sturdy sneakers and/or closed-toe sandals, and a spare set of clothes.
