Welcome to a creative, fun-filled, and educational summer at Cape Cod Academy!
Our Seahawk Camp Staff have been working diligently to get programs in place for the summer of 2015. We’ve added programming for students in all grades, from Pre-K – 12, including SAT prep, college essay writing, and more.
The summer of 2014 was truly a spectacular time to be a camper at Seahawk Camp. The weather was amazing! Campers enjoyed our outdoor heated pool either in Red Cross certified swim lessons or simply loving free swim time with their new friends. Each camper became more confident and advanced in their swimming ability by the time they left camp. Last summer I saw Seahawk campers truly embracing new experiences and accepting exciting challenges within our program offerings. The smiles on camper’s faces were abundant! They really enjoyed trips to the beach, archery, tennis, spotting the Seahawk on campus, soccer games, capture the flag, fun craft projects, cooking lessons they could easily share with their family and challenging scavenger hunts. I am looking forward to seeing those smiling faces again this summer. If your child wasn’t a part of the Seahawk Camp, please join us this summer!

The entire staff is looking forward to sharing fun, active, self-empowering and happy camp experiences with all of our campers this summer!
