Build your child’s self-confidence with our summer programs!
Benchmark Summer Camp offers children in grades 1-6 an ideal setting for developing and maintaining skills and strategies, building confidence and self-esteem, and having fun while becoming stronger learners and self-advocates.
The five-week program includes Benchmark's internationally-recognized language arts program, executive function skills instruction, design thinking activities, as well as art, science, and sports opportunities. In addition, Benchmark campers are challenged and supported as they experience our 35-event Confidence Course, which includes a 40-foot high, 250-foot long Zip Wire. All of these elements make it a summer filled with learning, creating, and fun!
Campers from Around the Nation... and the World!
Although Benchmark is a day camp, the success of the summer program has led parents to make arrangements to send their children to Benchmark Camp arriving from New York, New England, Washington State, California, and even South America, Africa, and Asia, so that they may benefit from this transformational experience.
Thank you to the staff of Benchmark for making my son Quinn's first year at camp so special. I was nervous about him going to camp all day since he is only seven and can be really shy. He comes home every day so proud of his artwork... and he loves Discovery Club and swimming.... His reading is coming along...he loves the read-alouds. When I drop him off, every person is so positive and kind; it really makes a difference. I am so glad we found Benchmark!
