Summer Adventures

For more than 40 years, fields, forests, ponds, and mountains have served as the backdrop for the Harris Center’s summer programs, which offer outdoor explorations for kids in pre-school through middle school. Harris Center summer campers hike, play, climb, canoe, camp, paint, build, sing, and learn alongside skilled naturalists. Dates and details for 2022 camps are listed in this brochure. Scholarships are available. Online registration for 2022 summer camps opens here on March 1 at 9 a.m.
