Sarah and her children Leah and Sam - Harvard, MA

sarah I had never considered sending my children to summer camp before the Marcus Lewis Day Camp came to Harvard. As a part-time working mom, I didn't think I could afford to send my children to camp. However, not only did I find the camp experience an incredible value compared to the other group lessons my children have been involved in but the sheer joy that they derived from the camp made it much much more than worth it. My children absolutely loved it!

The Marcus Lewis Day Camp being situated at the Bromfield School campus gave my children and me great peace of mind: they were familiar with their environment and I loved knowing they were nearby. Plus, the convenience of the camps location allowed me to spend less time commuting and more time actually completing my tasks for the day.

Unlike my own dreary childhood day camp experiences where one may or not have gotten anything out of the activities offered, my children had an opportunity to actually learn and become proficient at various activities. The staff consists of skilled professionals and counselors over the age of 18 plus a registered nurse. The ratio of camper to counselor is 5:1, making it impossible for a child to fall through the cracks. At the MLDC, my children took lessons in archery, boating, soccer, computer lab, baseball, nature, swimming, fishing, arts and crafts and, of course, tennis. Every day at pick-up time the children excitedly told me about all the wonderful adventures they had experienced. In our household, the countdown is already on for next summer at the Marcus Lewis Day Camp!
