Our Approach

We believe summer is a time for being outdoors, having wonderful experiences, making friends and coming together as a community. We foster this sense of exploration, creativity and growth by engaging with each child (and their families), learning about their goals and needs and helping them achieve their goals. Whether the goal is to hit a bullseye in archery, pass a swim test, make new friends, tackle homesickness or tell a great joke to a large audience, our staff listen to our campers every day and help them every step of the way.


We look after each child’s physical, mental, social and emotional well-being.

As a small New England traditional residential summer camp, we provide one-on-one engagement and encouragement with each camper. Put simply, no child falls through the cracks at Quinebarge. Our cabin staff and activity staff are specially trained to watch and listen to what is going on with each camper, where they are excelling and where they are having difficulty. Our low camper-to-staff ratio enable us to meet our campers needs and ensure all our campers have a happy, healthy and positive residential summer camp experience.
