How do I register?
Can I send in lunch or is buying lunch required? How can I buy lunch?
Campers always have the option to bring their own picnic lunch to camp, or they can purchase lunch on a weekly basis.
Our lunches are offered Monday through Thursday. (Friday is our all-camp cookout day, and included for every camper!) Campers entering grades eight and nine will only be able to order lunch for the two days they are not traveling. Lunch includes one of the following: hot entrée, sandwich, wrap, salad, or bagel. Fruit and a lunch snack are included.
The cost for this program is $36 per week.
The cost of the 8’s and 9’s lunch program is $18 per week.
You may sign up for lunch while registering your camper or at a later date by calling or emailing the camp office. The deadline to order lunch is Wednesday at noon, prior to the week for which you are ordering the lunches.

Do you have health care providers on site?
What is your discipline policy?
How do I know if this is a good fit for my child?
What happens at camp during extreme weather, like rain or heat?
We are fortunate to have access to indoor facilities. Our activities run as scheduled on rainy days, or we 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. On hot days, we pay close attention to the heat index and alter activities accordingly.
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?
Can I request that my child be in the same group as a friend?
Yes! If you would like to request your child be in the same group as a friend, there is a place on the application form to do so. Your camper may request one friend, and the same friend must also request your camper. The friend requested must be the same age and entering the same grade in the fall as your camper. Multiple friend requests will not be accommodated.
I know there are two weeks in a session. Can a session be split or prorated?
A session cannot be split or prorated.
