Summer Program

The Summer Program welcomes students from Foote and the greater New Haven community for the hands-on projects and outdoor play, leading to new friendships and memories that last a lifetime.

Summer Adventures

Our Summer Adventures camp offers children ages 5 and up play and hands-on projects for two weeks in June and two weeks in August. Come for one day, all of them or anything in between. Children explore, create and make new friends in a relaxed atmosphere  on Foote's 18-acre campus. Campers can learn yoga, art, gardening and other structured activities and still have plenty of time for free play. Dawn Walsh and her Summer Program staff are experienced, caring and creative.
