Summer Camps

The Spirit of Summer- Experience Thoreau Summer Camps!

Registration for 2019 is OPEN!

An engaging outdoor camp and tennis camp nestled on 35 wooded acres in Concord, MA.

Since 1951 Camp Thoreau has been fostering youth development by building confidence, teamwork, responsibility and friendship in our campers. We pride ourselves on a truly unique and fulfilling camp experience.

68 years later Camp Thoreau's summer camp mission is still relevant...
  • To empower campers and help them identify their individual strengths and to celebrate the unique personality each camper brings to our camp community.
  • To provide the nurturing, support and encouragement campers need to be happy and successful.
  • To develop a program in which every lesson, activity and camp event relates to our character constellation and where each camper can strive to achieve his or her personal best.
