Clark School Summer Camp, North Shore MA

Summer Camp at the Clark School, is a place for North Shore kids to build their own adventures with a mix of traditional camp activities and exciting field trips. Open to kids entering kindergarten through 8th grade, Summer at the Clark School was founded on traditional summer camp activities but is continuously providing opportunities for exploration of exciting new offerings. Enjoy your favorite activities and try something new; play classic camp games, learn to build a fire, and get creative with cool arts & crafts projects. Explore new horizons with dramatic arts, virtual reality, and 3D printing and more. View the 2022 Summer Camp schedule below for specific theme weeks.

Why is the Clark Schools a great option for Summer Camp?

Part of each day at the Clark School Summer Camp will be focused on that week’s theme and, for the rest of the day, campers are given choice activities and even some free time to ride bikes and to engage in another choice activity.  All activities are optional, and there is more than one choice for each block of the day, offering something for everyone!

Clark School Weekly Summer Camp Themes 

Half Sleepover: June 21-24

Join us for a fun first week of summer camp that will end with a half sleepover on Friday. Campers will stay for a cookout and s’mores. We will play camping and sleepover games and activities and end the evening by changing into our PJ’s, popping some popcorn and watching a movie.

Animal Antics: June 27 – July 1

This is the summer camp top pick for animal lovers. Animals will be the theme for our activities and games. We may visit a zoo or local farm and learn about some exotic animals as well.

Explorers and Treasure Hunters: July 11-15

Calling all explorers and treasure hunters!! We will explore forests and trails around the area to see what interesting things we can find. We will work together to escape traps, complete puzzles and find the hidden treasure at the end of a scavenger hunt.

Mad Scientist Week: July 18-22

Our very own mad scientist will help the campers conduct experiments, construct simple machines and make messy concoctions. Be prepared to invent, experiment and have some fun at the Mad Scientist summer camp theme week!

Splish Splash Wacky Water Week: July 25-29

Water is the theme of this week and – although we will not be traveling to a water park – we will create our own water fun here on campus. There are water games, water balloons and we even create our own slip-n-slide on the back hill. If field trips are allowed, we may have the option of traveling to the beach or Hood’s Pond.

Spirit Week: August 1-5

Let’s celebrate Summer@Clark and get in the spirit of summer. Each day will have a different theme. Campers will dress according to that theme and that theme will guide our daily activities.

Clark’s Got Talent: August 8-12

Each year we meet a variety of campers who have so many talents. In addition to all of our regular summer camp activities, we will be preparing for S@C’s Got Talent Show on Friday of this week. Students will sign up to participate and will be given time each day to practice their talent.  We will end the week with a Talent Show where each camper can show us their special talent!
