Camp Registration for 2021 (both Main Camp and Preschool) is now CLOSED.
We are not taking any additional registrations. If you are already on our waitlist, you will hear from us if a space opens up.

Welcome to all of our DCH Summer Camp Families!

Information for 2021 will be updated in March.

Below is important information about summer camp. 


Important Summer Camp Reminders:

* Please call the camp phone (781-329-3500) if your camper is going to be picked up early, will be absent or late. Leave a message if no one answers.\


* Camper t-shirts and driveway placards are handed out to all new campers each Monday of their first week of camp.  If you do not receive these items by the Wednesday please e-mail us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


* Morning drop off is from 8:45 -9:15am. Camp staff will help your camper out of the car. All parents and campers must be wearing a mask.  Please do not leave your car when in the driveway as we have a constant flow of vehicles to get in and out. Afternoon pick-up is from 4:00-4:30pm. Pull into the driveway and have your placard ready. If you need to come into camp to speak with your camper's head counselor or a member of our leadership team please park your car on the street and walk your camper to the check in table after the 9:15am drop off time. Parking is available at our pool lot, or in metered spots on High Street.


* Extended Day drop off begins at 7:30am (Summer 2021) and last camper pick up is at 5:45pm (Summer 2021).  If you are using the morning Extended Day option, please park your car then escort your camper to a counselor who will sign them in. If you are using Extended Day in the afternoon, park your car and see a counselor to sign your child out. To register for Extended Day, contact the office at 781-329-5740 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Pre-registration for extended day closes the Wednesday before the session begins. 


* in 2021, we will not be storing lunches in our refrigerators. Please pack an icepack in your campers lunch box. 


* Please DO NOT SEND electronics, phones, toys or other devices to camp. Also, DO NOT SEND personal archery equipment to camp. DCH is not responsible for these items if they get lost, stolen or broken at camp.


* We do our best to reunite campers with their lost items. At the end of each camp week, please visit our Lost & Found, located in the Rec Room. All lost and found is donated in September if not claimed. 


* Every Friday there is a cookout followed by Skits. We serve hamburgers (veggie burgers), hotdogs and chips (or pizza if we can't grill due to weather). Please still send snacks on Fridays! There is a full day of fun after cookouts. Unfortunantly in 2021 we cannot have parents attend skits. We will be video taping and will send them out after the session.
