Discovering Camp Harbor was the best find and decision we made for our child. When my son was in PreK, I was looking for a summer program with structure, supervision, and swim lessons. Camp Harbor in St. James offered that and so much more..... They had mini day/full day options, amazing enrichment programs (chess instruction with friends at 6yo), and a kindergarten readiness program that helped me- I mean him- easily transition to elementary school. Every year he loved it more and more. He learned sports, he became a confident swimmer, and he has made year round "camp" friends that look forward to hanging out over the summer. And when the schools shut down during the pandemic, we enrolled him into Harbor Country Day School for his last year of middle school. He had in-person classes everyday this year. This fall he will start high school- but will still spend the summer as a Counselor-In-Training (CIT) at Camp Harbor, his first job path. - Proud Mom, Jody B.
