About Hale Day Camp in Westwood, MA

Hale Day Camp is the perfect opportunity to give your child a fun and enriching summer experience! Our four age-based divisions are tailored to the developmental needs of campers, with activities designed to engage their minds and bodies. When enrolling your child, please keep in mind that these are “rising” grade ranges; in other words, your child should be entering the corresponding grade for the upcoming fall. Hale Education, Inc. is a private nonprofit committed to providing quality programs and services for children, families, and residents in the Greater Boston area. Established in 1944, we are proud to have been able to carry on the legacy of our founder, Robert Sever Hale, who wanted to use the property to foster education and responsible citizenship. Each year, we serve thousands of children and families from 70 different communities, offering them access to 1,100+ acres of beautiful forests, ponds, and meadows in Westwood and Dover, Massachusetts. We invite you to come explore and experience the incredible wonders of Hale Day Camp for yourself!
