The Longfellow Camps have offered fun learning summer camps for children in the greater Boston area for over thirty-five years and has grown to become New England’s largest day camp. Every year Longfellow finds ways to improve and expand our summer camp experience for young people of all ages. We have a wide variety of camps that give your children many options for summer fun.

Camp Longfellow at Natick

Directed by Caroline Donahue, Camp Longfellow at Natick uses the facilities at the Longfellow Sports Club and the Natick Racquet Club and is available for children ages 3-10 years. Our “All Star” campers (aged 5 – 10 years) take part in yoga, swimming lessons, arts & crafts and go on fabulous field trips while our “Champion” campers (ages 3 – Pre K) enjoy soccer, special visitors such as puppet shows and music as well as swimming lessons and arts & crafts!  Spaces fill up fast so enroll EARLY.

Girls Club @ Longfellow

Girls Club @ Longfellow is an NEW and innovative program dedicated to girls ages 10 – 14 years old.
This program is to inspire and guide girls, to help discover themselves and develop the skills, knowledge, confidence and courage they need to consistently make informed life-choices from a place of self-knowledge, self-respect and strength. Most importantly, a young girl should recognize that she is the author of her own path – not by the media, society or anyone else.
Through art, yoga, dance, discussion, writing, swimming, fitness and a variety of other fun and dynamic activities, the girls will be guided to develop tools to successfully navigate issues every girl faces.
This Club has very limited spaces and enrollment is done on a first come, first serve basis. Please call for available spaces and more details. Caroline Donahue (508) 653 4633.

This program offers instruction in a wide variety of art media including ceramics with our own kiln and wheel. Dance, improvisation and swimming lessons are included. Campers have use of the Afterschool Program’s “clubhouse” space next to The Zip Zone.
