Ask Dawn Cancryn about the goal of Wardlaw + Hartridge School Summer Adventure Programs and the pride she takes in the program will be quickly evident. “Our goal is to provide a safe and exciting place for children to express their ideas, learn and explore new things,” said Cancryn, Director of Auxiliary Services and Summer Programs. “This is a place where children are encouraged to become independent thinkers.”
Sessions are open to ages 3-18. With stimulating programs like Camp Funshine, Adventure Camp, Teen Leadership Camp, Summer Scholars, Brain Boosters and Pulse Sports, campers and students return year after year. All camp programs include interesting and educational weekly themes, freshly made hot lunches and exciting trips or events. Campers get to swim in the indoor pool and Summer Scholars classes are offered for enrichment learning or credit courses.
The modern facilities include air-conditioned classrooms, two gymnasiums, a performing arts theatre, two playgrounds, an indoor pool and 32 acres of playing fields, including tennis courts and turf fields. The campers are guided by an amazing staff. “Attentive and caring counselors are well-trained and sourced from Wardlaw + Hartridge students and alumni,” Cancryn said. “The counselors know everyone by name and learn something special about each camper. The idea is we take care of our people when they come.”
With a history dating back nearly 150 years—and innovative programming that highlights today’s technologies—W + H Summer Adventure programs inspire their campers and students to “Discover” themselves, “Explore” new experiences and “Be Amazed” at their abilities.
