Vacation Camps

Open to Campers Ages 3 – 12*

Summer at LA offers a variety of vacation camps during the school year. We follow the Massachusetts public school vacation schedule. Below are the upcoming vacation camps that are being offered this year!

Our vacation camps are a little different than our summer camps. Families are welcome to sign up for single days or for the entire camp – whatever works best for your family! During each vacation camp we also head off campus on fun trips on at least 2 of the days. Check back frequently and keep an eye on your email for trip details!

Each vacation camp runs from 9 AM – 4 PM on each day camp is offered. We also run AM and PM extended care (8:00 – 8:45 AM and 4:00 – 5:30 PM) as well as we do run a bus that picks up and drops off daily at Emerson Hospital Urgent Care at The Point in Littleton, MA. (8 AM Pick Up and 4:30 PM Drop Off.) Bus space is limited! You can sign up for both Extended Care and/or the bus during the registration process for any of the following vacation camps.

*During our Vacation Camps, we offer a special Jr. Leaders program for a small number of returning campers who are 13 – 15 years old. If your camper is interested in this opportunity, please contact the Camp Office (campoffice@lacademy.edu)
