Summertime…Or, Oops I forgot to sign up for camp! While most of you have camps already in progress, you just might be looking to fill in an odd week here or there. There are still tons of options – not to worry!
Campseekers makes summer scheduling easier by giving parents a targeted list of summer camp sessions that meet specific criteria.
You can search for camp by location, date and camp type (i.e. sports) to find camp sessions that meet specific criteria – you can then filter by activity (i.e. soccer) or age to find the camp sessions that best fit their summer goals.
Currently, Campseekers includes approximately 250 camps representing close to 10,000 sessions in the greater Boston area. It is completely free to become a member of Campseekers.

The Envi Sci program combines fun outdoor activities with learning about the environment. Each year it builds on the “peer education” principle by having the student leaders design, develop, and deliver the materials that the students use. New students are encouraged to return and become leaders in subsequent years, continuing the thread of responsibility for care and teaching about the environment.
A typical activity would be a hike to an area of interest, often in Newton but sometimes elsewhere, such as the Arnold Arboretum. Other activities range from bicycle trips to night walks for learning about nocturnal wildlife. We go on a 12-mile canoe trip on the Charles River, and we take water samples to report on the water quality. The learning materials for each day may cover ecology, geology, botany, pollution issues, or other areas that the student leaders select.
Each year there is an environmental cleanup project in which participants get hands-on involvement with improving an environmental sit

Search and message instructors directly, or create a Request and let them come to you.
Get to know each other; and if the fit is good, schedule your lesson. Take a lesson (or two) online, at home, at your instructor’s studio.
There are also great city and town camps – check with your town – Newton Community Education is where I generally start.
