Camp Woodtrail 2021

Greetings from the Woodtrail Staff

Welcome to a modified version of the 2021 Woodtrail Camp summer program where opportunities of (six) one-week sessions will be offered to  campers entering 1st-8th grades. We are excited to present an adaptive atmosphere of action-packed activities and adventure at the Wilson Middle School and the Bennett-Hemenway School sites.

With our faces adorned with masks and our social distancing expectations in place, the staff will be offering a slice of “sun-sational” summer fun! We promise  participation and play, a sliver of silliness, stunts and songs, rounded out with a wedge of the whimsical wonders of Woodtrail.   All this will be topped with a huge heap of happiness, hikes, hobbies and more.

We invite campers to join in a welcoming atmosphere of adaptation, flexibility and creativity. A menu of healthy habits will be honored and hosted each day while the staff and campers explore and learn to appreciate the many potentials of the great outdoors. Our weekly programming will be a time for making memories in the fresh air, creating crafts, igniting imaginations and fostering fairness and fun.  Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions, there will be limited opportunities (if any) for field trips and off campus activities. We will happily add programming if we are allowed to by the Massachusetts Board of Health.  

Although we will be limited around pursuing some of our traditional offerings, we are ready to reimagine and reinvent some of our most beloved activities.  We will be providing a special season of socialization and safety within our world of adventure and light-hearted leisurely pursuits.

As a staff,  we will reinforce strategies of engagement, compromise, respect and inclusion. Together, we look forward to traveling down intertwined trails of uncharted camp opportunities and adaptable community service projects with your children this summer.  

Woodtrail is a well-established co-ed day camp that is grounded by its rich history, traditions, successes and kinship. We believe strongly in the positive values and formative experiences to be gained from our camp, where participation based recreational opportunities are offered each day.
