Summer Camp Update

June 4, 2020

With sadness, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all camp sessions at Wellfleet and Chatham this summer. The re-opening plan for Massachusetts provides a cautious approach for the months ahead. After extensive discussion and site-specific scenario planning, we concluded that Wellfleet is best suited to offer alternative public programs for children and families this summer due to the social distancing challenges and facility limitations at our site.

Wellfleet Bay's day camps in Wellfleet and Chatham inspire a child's lasting curiosity and excitement about nature. Campers have fun while making friends and exploring the outdoors. Above all, we create happy and memorable outdoor experiences for our campers.


Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary (Wellfleet)

At this 1,100 acre wildlife sanctuary, campers explore trails that bring them to a panoramic salt marsh, sandy barrier beach, and pine woodlands, each attracting a wide array of wildlife. Learn more >

Chatham Elementary School (Chatham)

Camp headquarters is located at Chatham Elementary School. Each camper group will have a classroom to store belongings and use as a place for activities when there’s inclement weather. Learn more >
