Summer Camp

The Dewey School offers a nature-based summer camp experience for children ages 4 years 8 months - 10 years of age. Chose one, two, or all four of the week long sessions (8am - 3pm) designed to strengthen a love for nature and learning through play. 


Each day will provide opportunities to connect with nature, build friendships, and strengthen our knowledge of the world around us through a hands-on learning approach.  Our daily adventures take place on 700 acres of forest at the Canterbury Shaker Village with activities including fort building, whittling, free-form art, exploration of stream and ponds, nature games, mindful moments, music, and more.
