Summer Discoveries

Welcome! Thank you for considering Belmont Day Summer Discoveries Programs for your family.   

We offer four different kinds of day summer camp programs:

  • Belmont Day Camp – Our traditional recreational summer day camp for children 3- to 15-years-old includes instructional and recreational swimming, arts, outdoor exploration, athletics, woodworking, archery, and more! Belmont Day Camp offers one- and two-week sessions from June through August.  
  • Journeys – Our day trip program for children 10.5- to 13-years-old is offered in single weeks in July and August and then for children entering grades two to eight during the third week of August. Trips include boating, indoor rock climbing, outdoor adventure courses, water and amusement parks, local museums, the beach, and more.
  • Sports – We offer three week-long single sport camps: basketball camp during the third week of June and soccer and tennis camp during the third week of August.    
  • Specialty Programs – These special programs focus on specific disciplines including theater, culinary arts, math, robotics, and art. These camps are offered during specific weeks for a smaller range of grades.  

Visit the pages for each specific type of summer day camp program for more detailed information, specific offerings, dates, and rates. Registration for Summer 2020 is now open.

Our day summer camp programs allow participants to take full advantage of all that our 11-acre campus has to offer. Outdoors, you will find two swimming pools, two athletic fields and an archery field, tennis courts, a playground, and woods with hiking trails. The Schoolhouse includes a performing arts space, a full-sized gym with ropes course elements, and the opening of the Barn, our shiny new building, adds two additional gym spaces and several studios for arts, innovation, and woodworking.

Our summer camp options are available for children throughout Arlington, Cambridge, Lexington, Lincoln, Medford, Newton, Waltham, Watertown, Winchester, Woburn, MA and the surrounding communities.
