The 2020/21 Experience at Crescent Camps & Programs
Crescent’s Summer Camp Program is offering both on-campus and virtual programs this summer! As our community’s health and safety is our number one priority, we are offering carefully curated and small cohort on-campus programs as well as a wide range of virtual camp offerings.
Both camp delivery options will maintain our high standards, engaging content and positive relationships that define our camper experiences. The virtual option adds flexibility for our campers to attend camp from anywhere there is wifi.

Many independent schools are fortunate to have beautiful grounds, modern and professionally equipped facilities and highly experienced faculty, and that’s particularly true at Crescent. Where many day camps offer robotics, they can’t, for example, also offer theatre arts out of a fully equipped theatre facility, or printmaking out of a fully equipped studio. Crescent can—and does—do all of that and more. There’s also an ease that comes with having it all in one place; while campers have the option of doing ultimate frisbee one week and arts the next, the location allows them and their parents to fall in to some longer-term routines in terms of daily transportation and schedules. (And the fact that lunch is included is, from the parental perspective at least, kind of thrilling.) The camp is close to public transportation as well as a wealth of multi-use green space, including play fields and the ravine that abuts the property. Home to a low-ropes course, the ravine also offers abundant opportunity for exploration and nature study. There are programs here that you won’t find anywhere else, such as Architectural Concepts and Design and Money Matters, a session presenting financial literacy concepts. The Discovery Camp allows fun opportunities for younger campers to explore athletics, arts, makerspace and nature, combining these themes with different activities each week. Most of the programs are led by Crescent faculty who have expertise in their area of athletics, arts, robotics and business. Instructors who are not Crescent faculty have extensive expertise in the program areas, previous camp leadership experience, and are often alumni of the school. Ultimately, there’s a lot to love, particularly for campers who are looking for programming that falls outside the typical day-camp fare.

For the second summer in a row, Crescent School’s campus was busy while school was out, as nearly 190 boys and girls enjoyed Crescent’s day camps.
The Crescent summer camp programs expanded this year, offering more day camps that included theatre arts, financial literacy, architecture, sports, technology and more.
“Our camps focus on innovation, creativity, collaboration, building connections and building character,” says Donna MacKenzie, who manages the Crescent Camps program. She says Crescent will continue to build its camps program, ensuring that next year’s March Break and Summer Camps continue to offer high-quality instruction and engaging activities.
