BrightPath Connecticut Summer Camp

Summer Camp

(For children entering first grade through age 12.)

Our all-inclusive program is more than just a camp! With daily team-building activities and collaborative week-long projects, our campers feel more like family! Unlike the academic school year, your school-age child won't spend the summer in a "race-to-the-top". Our summer camp focuses on the process of each activity, not just the product.

Our campers are able to explore their individual interests at their own pace while experiencing a pure camp experience that is as memorable, diverse and rewarding as we remember ours to be. Building friendships, developing a love of learning and having fun are the important values we emphasize, and with weekly field trips and exciting activities, our campers have the time of their lives!

A typical day consists of a balance between structured team activities with a focus on fun and time for campers to explore their own interests. Each week's activities include opportunities to spark campers' curiosity in the areas of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). Campers experience the value of perseverance and the pride of success while being challenged in a nurturing and fun-filled environment!

Our camp lunch and snack menus are specially designed to please school-age kids, and once a week, we have a barbeque lunch ... all the burgers and dogs you can eat!

Our Summer Camp will take place at the following locations: BrightPath Avon, BrightPath Ellington, BrightPath  Glastonbury, & BrightPath Simsbury.
