We are pleased to announce the renamed and revamped WINGS program. WINGS will now be known as R.E.C. (Recreational Enrichment classes). Brochure will be available beginning of March.

We are thrilled to be able to offer some exciting educational and enrichment classes this Summer such as Vet School, Coding, 3D Construction and Exploring Science just to name a few. Many classes are offered in both the AM and PM sessions. Classes are held at Sprague School and are open to Wellesley students entering grades K – 5.

We have also modified the start times this year to streamline the drop off and pick up times for parents. Morning session will run 9:00 ‐ 11:45 am and the afternoon session will run 12:30—3:15 pm. We will also be offering an early morning drop off time for parents beginning at 8:00 am for an additional fee. Cost is $165 per student per class per session.


Counselor In Training (CIT) Program: Ages 14-15

Teenagers interested in becoming a CIT this summer, will be required to fill out an application and will then go through an interview with our Camp Directors. The 2020 CIT Program is for 14 & 15 year olds (must be 14 by May 1st, 2020 to qualify) . This will be a highly selective program where only a few applicants will be accepted.

The CIT Program is three two-week sessions. The program runs daily from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm at both Camp Joey (grades K - 2) located at the Warren Building and Camp Q (grades 3 - 8) located at Wellesley High School. If selected, you will be able to choose to attend one, two or all three sessions.

If chosen as a CIT, there is NO cost to attend. CIT's will be provided with staff shirts and will be able to attend field trips with their respective camp at no additional cost.

With the guidance of the Camp Directors and other staff members, CIT's will assist in leading activities and learning new skills in a variety of settings at Camp. At the conclusion of their two-week session, CIT's will also design and complete a work project of their own choosing, giving back to the Camp community.
