2020 Virtual Day Camp Schedule

Since the 1930s, Hawken Day camp has provided campers of all ages opportunities to make new friends, learn new skills, and experience a variety of summer activities in the sun. The Hawken Day Camp staff remains committed to providing children with similar opportunities during the Covid-19 crisis. While day camp will not take place in-person during the summer of 2020, Hawken administrators and counselors have put together a six-week program that will provide children with structure, routine, and many of the core elements of Hawken Day Camp that campers have come to know and love.
 
Any families that register for our free 2020 Day Camp will receive a schedule of events for the week that can be accessed live when they are posted or later when campers have free time. In addition to a weekly schedule of demonstrations, entertainment, and connections, campers will enjoy traditional camp activities such as the coloring contest, opportunities to submit articles for the weekly newspaper, Beach Day, and much more.
