Our goal at Seahawk Summer Camp is to create the best possible camp environment in which children can thrive. We believe camp is a place where children have the opportunity to try new activities, take on new challenges, increase their self esteem and grow in a safe, nurturing, fun environment. We accomplish this through a dynamic and creative program organized by our warm and caring professional staff.
This staff is what makes Seahawk truly unique. All staff members are carefully selected and trained as we set a very high standard for staff involvement with our campers. One of the most important aspects of each child’s summer is the special relationship that will blossom with his/her counselors.
We welcome you to take a look through our information and enroll today. If you have any further questions after learning more about us, please contact Director Jenn Peterson in the Seahawk Summer Camp office at Cape Cod Academy at 508-428-5400.

Parent Testimonials from Summer 2013
Wonderful and engaging counselors, amazing art projects, swimming, and fun games. The children really enjoyed their time at camp and didn’t want to leave at the end of the day.
My kids were just happy there. We had tried three other camps and this is the only time they did not complain.
I was very pleased with all the activities offered and more importantly, my children had the best time! Everyone was very professional and worked so well with the children.
All counselors and kids seemed happy to be there and they made the most of their 8 weeks. Kids got plenty of individual attention. I love how a lot of their art projects were based on whatever the kids were “into” that week.
I was pleasantly surprised that the campers had most (if not all) CCA faciliities available to them, including the fridge for lunches! Having a fridge available widens the choices I have for packing my kids a lunch (as opposed to non-refrigerated foods only). Thank you for a great summer!
