A bit about us...
Murray Camp of Nantucket Island is a private licensed day camp based at the Nantucket New School. The camp, established in 1989 by it's current directors, provides youngsters ages 4 through 14 with the opportunity to experience social, academic and physical enrichment.
We recognize that children have preferred styles of learning and unique developing personalities. We have designed our curriculum to ensure that all children benefit from our enriching curriculum. We strive to support our campers by providing friendship building skills and experiences.. Wonderful nostalgic memories of their summers spent on the island attending Murray Camp is our goal for all off the children entrusted in our care.
Our goal is to have our campers eagerly look forward to returning to the island each summer. We believe that all children will benefit from having the opportunity to become enriched in our holistic camp experience. We believe strongly in the many benefits of "fun" and responsibly strive to enrich our campers with experiences that provide just that!
A bit more..
Treasured Nantucket summers are memories that Murray Camp has been providing to children on Nantucket island for over three decades. Our camp philosophy focuses on creating an environment where safety, kindness and fun all flourish. It is the mission of the camp, that every child participating in our programs, experience the opportunity for positive, healthy development. We acknowledge and respect that all children require nurturing through social, emotional, academic and physical enrichment. We strive to provide an atmosphere in which our curriculum and our overall camp environment, encourage this solid foundation.
We have earned a reputation for being a nurturing, stimulating, protective, summer camp in which parents have entrusted their children's care for thirty years. The camp's founding administrators, whose own children grew up attending the camp, remain directly on site supervising staff and travel with the campers on a daily basis. We hire positive role model staff, many of them former Murray campers themselves, to inspire children toward a sense of responsibility and fair play. We are quite delighted to have many of our former campers returning with children of their own as campers.
Murray Camp is the perfect place for children to meet new friends and learn from enthusiastic staff. We are proud of the international reputation that our camp has maintained since its founding. In recent years, we have welcomed campers from England, Ireland, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Sweden, Poland, the Philippines and Japan. We hope to see your family at Murray Camp this coming summer to experience a summer your children will thoroughly enjoy!
