Making the transition from a day camp to a sleepaway camp can feel intimidating for both parents and kids. Our one-week Pioneer Camp, available to campers finishing first and second grade, is a great introduction to Camp Walt Whitman’s down-to-earth community and well-rounded, co-ed summer camp.
We assign our most veteran counselors to these seven-day sessions so your camper feels supported day and night. We also pack the week with the fun activities we enjoy all summer long in New Hampshire’s stunning White Mountains. Pioneers swim in our beautiful lake and heated swimming pool, zip line through the tall pines, slip and slide down our front lawn, get messy in a shaving cream fight, and enjoy s’mores by the campfire.
When our Pioneers return for a longer stay the following summer, they’ll arrive with a lay of the land and ready-made friends. See below for our upcoming sessions and get in touch for more information.
