Concord Academy’s first-class facilities, provides campers with an extensive array of activities, rain or shine. Whether it is the outdoor sports fields, arts and ceramics studios, woodshop, dance studio, theatre, squash courts, outdoor swimming pool, or canoeing on the river, campers will never be bored at CA Summer Camp. Lunch is provided daily in our spacious, air-conditioned dining hall.
A camp is only as good as its staff! At Concord Academy Summer Camp, we hire counselors who are enthusiastic, fun, creative, caring, and safety-conscious. An adult head counselor, generally a professional educator or recent college graduate, along with three other staff members lead each group of campers. All of our staff are committed to providing a summer experience that is memorable for each and every camper. Our counselor to camper ratio is 1:4 for Kiddie Camps, 1:5 for Day Camps, 1:6 for Teen Camps, and at least 1:6 for all Specialty Camps. All Concord Academy staff undergo thorough background checks, including CORIs, SORIs, reference checks, and an intensive interview process. All counselors complete a comprehensive pre-camp training and many are certified or trained in First Aid, CPR, life guarding, water safety, as well as specialized programs such as canoeing and archery.
