A Camp Fair is an open window to get a good look at various areas of interest available in summer and camp programs. Check out traditional sleep-away camps, specialty camps that feature theatre and performing arts, community service opportunities, academic programs such as language immersion in the US and abroad, internships, as well as exciting programs like biking through Europe or surfing in Costa Rica, Wilderness Expeditions and Adventure camps for sailing, mountain climbing, scuba diving, white water rafting and much more.
