A Program of Schools for Children


Join the Pioneers (for campers entering grades 5 – 6) as they embark on daily adventures. Each week will include trips in and around the Boston area, exploring different museums, hiking, water adventures and other fun activities. These trips are all within an hour of Arlington and all admission fees are included in the tuition. This group does not have overnights.
