Who We Are

Dwight Summer Day Camp embraces the same philosophy as Dwight School, which customizes the experience for each student based on individual interests and passions. We call this igniting the “spark of genius” in every child. Through a wide range of age-appropriate programs ― including our specialty “spark” camps ― children can explore, discover what they enjoy doing, and pursue that passion while also making friends and having fun.

Yes. You Can Mix & Match Camps!

Year-end Goal for My Campers: Ultimately, I want my campers to gain a deep curiosity for the world, a sense of compassion and a chance to make friends/connections out side of their regular circle.
