Can I send in lunch or do they have to buy?

Campers have the option to purchase a lunch or bring their own picnic lunch to camp.

To order lunch:

  1. When you register your camper,  choose the weeks (under Additional Options) your camper will order lunch.
  2. If you would like to register for lunches AFTER JUNE 1st, you must call 781-320-1320.or email the camp office camp@nobles.edu.
  3. AFTER registering for lunches, log into your CampInTouch account here to select your child’s daily menu. If the meals are not selected, your child’s lunch will default to Sun Butter and Jelly sandwiches.
  4. If you want to change your lunch order or you neglected to sign up for lunches during registration, call into the camp office, 781-320-1320.
  5. Lunch selections must be made by NOON ON WEDNESDAY for the following week. After Wednesday, the food menu is no longer accessible, but orders that have been submitted have been received.
  6. Unfortunately due to the kitchen’s supply chain, lunch orders cannot be accepted after Wednesday. 

Our bagged lunches are offered Monday through Thursday for all ages, excluding campers entering grades 8 and 9.  Lunch includes one of the following: hot entrée of the day, sandwich, wrap or salad. Fruit and snack are included.

Do you have health care providers on site?
There are 3 health care providers on site during camp hours. Many of our staff are certified in CPR and First Aid. The entire camp staff is trained on how to use an EpiPen.
What is your discipline policy?
We have a no tolerance bullying policy. Our counselors receive training on our Behavioral Management Plan.
How do I know if this is a good fit for my child?
Our goal is to provide the best experience for your child.  We strongly encourage a tour of our campus and an overview of the program prior to registering. Due to the many transitions that occur during the day, children that require para-professional services in school often will need the same assistance in camp. Please call the camp office with any questions or concerns.
What do you do on a rainy day?
We are fortunate with our access to indoor facilities, so, on rainy days, most of our activities run as scheduled or we will provide an alternate activity location. We provide shuttle service to areas of the camp so campers stay dry and are still able to choose the activity they want. Proper rain gear is still suggested.
How do you screen your staff?

All staff members and volunteers are required to complete a CORI and SORI each season. In addition, they are fingerprinted through a national FBI search. All employees must submit an application, 3 written references and are personally interviewed. The majority of our staff is personally connected with current Nobles Day Camp staff or Noble and Greenough school employees.

What does your swim program entail?
American Red Cross certified swimming instructors/lifeguards work with each child and help them progress in their swimming skills.  To determine their swimming ability, campers will be tested and placed in the appropriate Red Cross level. Owls Nest Swimming Program: All Owls Nest Campers participate in a daily instructional swim lesson. Our 9 am–4 pm campers receive an additional free swim period. NDC 1– 7 Grade: All NDC Campers participate in a daily instructional swim lesson. Our 9 am–4 pm campers receive an additional free swim period. Teen Program: Since older campers take frequent field trips, instructional swim is not provided for the Eights and Nines. When they are at camp, they will follow a typical camp schedule. They can choose from a variety of activities and will have a block of free swim time. Click here for more information on our swim program.
Can I request a friend?

If you would like to request one friend, there is a place on the application form to do so. Each camper may request one friend, and the same friend must also request that camper. The friend request must be the same age and entering the same grade in the fall. Multiple friend requests will not be accommodated. 

I know there are 2 week in a session, can a session be split?
Sessions are not prorated.
