Shipley Day Camp, founded in 1985, is returning again this summer. Running for six weeks from Monday, June 21 through Friday, July 30, this traditional day camp will offer a balanced program of arts and athletics to kids entering grades K-5. Campers will have fun engaging with friends in non-competitive sports and games, creative arts and crafts projects, science and STEM experiments, and drama and music. Each week kids will also participate in theme-based activities including outer space exploration, wizardry and fairy tales, animal adventures, game shows, and ending with the Camp Olympics! 
The Day Camp is open to Shipley and non-Shipley students. It will run from 9:00 to 3:00, with no after-camp option this summer. We will follow all the same COVID safety protocols currently in place, including masking, sectioning students and limiting numbers in each section, minimizing any interactions across sections, and getting children outside as much as possible including when eating. 
Nikki Wiseman, current fourth grade teacher, is the Camp Director. The camp will be staffed primarily by experienced Shipley Lower School teachers. If you have any specific questions about the Day Camp, please contact Nikki Wiseman at
