We are looking forward to welcoming back returning and new campers this summer!

We are planning for camp with full physical distancing measures, and will be adjusting our protocols throughout the spring and summer. Luckily, we are a nature camp that already spends a great deal of time outside! Read below and check out our program descriptions for dates and more information. 

Senior Program (ages 11-15)  •  $1,055

In order to allow for adequate physical distancing while serving as many campers as possible, we are limiting our senior program to half capacity and offering five one-week sessions.

  • Session 1: June 27 – July 3
  • Session 2: July 6 – July 12
  • Session 3: July 14 – July 20*
  • Session 4: July 28 – August 3*
  • Session 5: August 5-August 11

*Note: sessions 3 and 4 are designed for campers who have already attended our Senior Program, or another similar experience. It is intellectually and physically more rigorous.

Junior/Family Camp (open to families with children aged 8-10)  •  $45 per person

This summer, we will be offering four days of family day camp in lieu of our junior program. Family camp will take place from 10 am – 7 pm, and will consist of a mix of favorite Cove activities. Programming will be aimed at our junior population – ages 8-10 – but siblings may attend. Families may rent a tent spot for the night. You may sign up for one or multiple days. 

  • August 13
  • August 14
  • August 15
  • August 16

Adult Weekend (ages 21+)  •  $235 / $415 per couple

For adults envious of their children’s camp time, or looking for a weekend in nature. Attendees are asked to tent and physically distance from others, but will still be able to participate in staff-led activities or enjoy the Cove on their own, and – of course – eat good food. 

  • July 23 – 25


There will be no informational sessions in 2021.
