Our Mission

The Nantucket New Camp is a summer program serving all children, ages 4 to 11. Our mission is to provide children with a safe, engaging, high quality, play-based camp experience. We focus on giving campers the opportunity to have as much fun as possible through a diverse program consisting of sports, hands-on creative projects, adventure and exploration. We are proud to partner with Strong Wings for the training of our staff and the structure and tone of many of our activities.
Registration is closed for the 2021 summer! We are sorry to have missed you, but we look forward to your participation in 2022.
Campers will have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of dynamic and engaging activities, both on campus and off campus. From water games and nature walks, to tried and true camp favorites like capture the flag and kick ball your camper is sure to come home with a huge smile, having made new friends and with a true sense of accomplishment.

  • Camp Policies

    Students must arrive at their base camp (15 Nobadeer Farm Road) promptly each morning at the starting time specified for each camp. Late arrivals may miss important details of the activities offered that day and their chance to choose their activity for the day.

    Students are not allowed to be dropped off early or picked up late, unless prior arrangements have been made with the director. Nantucket New Camp is not responsible for students before or after camp.

    Backpacks with lunches must accompany every student each day. Bathing suits, water bottles and sunscreen are essential. Please be prepared. (a separate supply list will accompany your confirmation email).

    Students should be prepared for inclement weather, as groups will be outside for most of the day.

    Inappropriate or unsafe student behavior may result in parental contact and removal from camp for the day. A second incident may result in permanent removal from camp and tuition may not be refunded.

Safety Is Our First Priority

We pride ourselves on hiring extremely qualified and enthusiastic leaders for our camps. All of our instructors are CPR, First-Aid certified, and must complete our intensive instructor training and orientation program prior to the start of camp.

Each morning our instructors take attendance and ensure that campers have everything they will need for the day, including food, water, and sunscreen. Instructors review general safety information with campers, including the “4 dangers” of Nantucket (ticks, dehydration, sunburn, and poison ivy), review emergency procedures, and encourage campers to communicate any questions or problems throughout the day. Instructors also review more detailed safety instructions prior to specific activities.

Instructors are vigilant throughout the day about keeping the group together and ensuring both campers’ physical and emotional safety. Every instructor carries guardian contact information and medical information for each camper in his or her group. He or she also has the phone number for the Camp Director (T.J. Grant) who is available throughout the day to address any issues and to communicate with parents if necessary. Instructors keep daily records of activities and incidents in camp journals, and report any concerns to the Director or Assistant Director at the end of the day, or during our daily pre-camp meeting.

We look forward to a safe and positive summer at Nantucket New Camp. Please feel free to contact us to speak further about our safety policies.
