Hillbrook Summer Programs

Summer Camp at Hillbrook offers our families a variety of flexible options for students of all grade levels. We invite parents and campers to choose the camps that excite and interest them. Summer is a wonderful opportunity to develop existing interests, explore new possibilities, make new friends, and have fun!

Each Hillbrook camp is developed and directed by an experienced educator who is supported by a team of counselors. While Hillbrook camps run independent of one another, campers mingle during lunch and snack time. They also come together in age-appropriate groups for large scale games.

Students who will be entering Hillbrook in the upcoming school year are welcomed and encouraged to join us for Summer Camp. We find that the students who join us for Summer Camp enjoy a smoother transition to Hillbrook once the school year kicks off. We hope to see yout this summer!

Join us for Summer@Hillbrook!

This year, we are thrilled to welcome non-Hillbrook families to join us during our six-week program, Summer@Hillbrook, from June 12-July 21. We offer camps geared toward students entering junior kindergarten-8th grade.
