Summer programming at Linden Hall is offered over a six week period in June, July, and August. Campers can choose to attend as many weeks as they would like. If you are interested in 2017 summer camps, please click on the appropriate registration link below for the camp of your choice.
The Traditional Summer Camp offers mix-and-match options for elementary and middle school campers based on their individual interests. In the morning, campers can choose from a multitude of three-hour specialty camps, including Creative Writing, Robotics, Spanish, and Mythology. In the afternoon, campers can choose from a selection of one-hour electives in each of the following areas: academic, athletic, and creative. Attend one week or all four!
Day campers who may need to arrive early or leave late can extend the fun by adding a morning or afternoon session.
Morning Session: 7:30am-9:00am
Get up and go! Campers start their day off with crafts, games, or other activities to help them get ready for the day. Campers may be dropped off any time between 7:30am and 8:30am. Rate remains the same no matter the drop off time. (A drop off time of 8:45am is considered part of the regular camp day and does not constitute the Extended Morning Session.)
Afternoon Session: 4:00pm-5:30pm
Ready for more fun? Campers can extend their camp day by participating in the Afternoon Session. Overnight campers are automatically included in the Afternoon Session. Day campers may be picked up anytime between 4:30pm and 5:30pm at the same rate. (A pick up time of 4:15pm or earlier does not count towards the Extended Afternoon Session.)
Activities each week focus on a different theme, such as superheroes, under the sea, or the Great Outdoors. Crafts, games, and other activities will be completed in relationship to the theme.
COST: $75/week/morning or afternoon
For a full camp experience, middle school age campers may stay in our dorms. Overnight campers will attend the day camp, extended day afternoon session, and evening session. Additionally, overnight campers have the option to stay on campus for the weekends. Weekend day trips to nearby destinations may be added for an additional fee.
Linden Hall’s Equestrian Camp encompasses an array of riding and horsemanship learning opportunities. Whether hoping to compete internationally or to saddle up for the first time, girls find this camp a comprehensive study that enlightens their equestrian knowledge. Possible activities include demonstrations by a horse dentist and farrier, as well as field trips to a race track, a breeding farm, and tack shops. This camp is a fun and educational way for campers to become acclimated to the Stables at Linden Hall.
The Equestrian Camp is open to girls entering grades 6-12 wishing to stay overnight. Campers may stay for any combination of weeks, including the option to stay on campus over the weekends. Equestrian campers may join other campers for weekend day trips to nearby destinations for an additional fee.
Campers arrive Sunday evening and depart Saturday morning each week unless staying for the weekend.
COLLEGE ESSAY WRITING
The College Essay Writing program aims to help campers develop a well-crafted essay for college admissions. Campers will explore sample essays and learn what colleges are looking for from prospective students. With plenty of one-on-one aid from the instructor, campers will draft and finalize an essay which they can then submit to the colleges of their choice.
Campers are welcome to stay for lunch. Arrangements for campers needing to stay overnight may be made on a case by case basis (girls only).
Space is limited, so please register early.
In addition to professional instructors, Linden Hall students serve as camp counselors, giving campers a glimpse of life at Linden Hall.
