Welcome to Pingree Day Camp!

For over 30 years, our day camp has offered one of the best and most comprehensive summer programs on the North Shore. Located on Pingree School's 100-acre campus, the camp uses the gymnasium, swimming pool, athletics fields, pond (for kayaking), computer labs, theater, and dance, music, and arts classrooms. All campers develop skills and confidence, increase self-esteem, and most importantly, have fun!

"Sam's having a total blast at camp! This is his first exposure to camp and I don't think it could be at a better place. We love Pingree camp!"
—Stephanie, Parent
