Grades 8-9

As our campers mature, our programs offer more opportunities to increase personal growth, social development and leadership skills. Campers earn the privilege of traveling, based on their behavior with both peers and staff, in and out of camp. Expectations increase with each age level as more freedom and responsibility is placed on the campers.


Campers choose from the following:
Archery, Arts & Crafts, Beading, Board Games, Boats (Canoes, Kayaks, Fishing, Rowboats), Book Nook, Clay/Ceramics, DanceGimp Lacings, GymnasticsMusic/Unit Time, Outdoor Living Skills, PhotographyPix and FlixRopes Course Challenge High and Low Elements, Sewing, Sports: baseball, basketball, dodgeball, flag football, kickball, lacrosse, soccer, street hockey, volleyball, Swimming, Tennis, Theater, Tie Dye and Woodworking

Field Trips

Groups balance the many exciting on-campus Nobles activity choices around their trip schedules*. Our campers in 8th, and 9th grades all travel out of camp at least twice per week. Safety is our main concern. Each group travels in a school or activity bus under close supervision of their group counselors.

Eights – (entering 8th grade) & Nines – (entering 9th grade)

  • Travel 2 times per week.*
  • Sample Trips: Tree Top Adventures, Dave  Busters, Puzzle Break, Little Harbor Boathouse, local beache
  • A weekly half day community service project with Needham Community Farm may be included** With the Nines Program.

* Trips may be subject to change due to CDC Guidelines, vendor, camp availability or weather. Instructional swim is not provided for 8s and 9s.
