Since 1972, Summer at Chestnut Hill has focused on providing an enriching camp environment where campers of all ages, abilities, and interests can flourish.  With an experienced team of educators, enthusiastic staff (many of whom were past campers and C.I.T.’s), and a diverse range of activities, campers learn, explore, create, make positive connections, and challenge themselves.  Our aim is for each camper to not only have an enriching camp experience, but to leave each summer with increased confidence, talents, and positive attributes.

Thank you for considering our programs.  For more information, and to see our indoor and outdoor facilities, join us at an Open House, or contact us for an individual tour.  Individual tours are always available and can be scheduled at your convenience.  To schedule a tour and/or ask questions, please contact us at (617) 264-1346 or send an email to

“My children made new friends and enjoyed their time at the camp. It was a very positive experience.  We were overall very pleased by all the efforts made to accommodate requests. The program is big enough to meet new people but not overwhelmingly large so that my child did not feel lost or just a number among a mass.”
