Our Partner Camps
As Official Partner Camps of Hale, four agencies are able to staff and operate their own summer programs on Hale’s acres of adventure.
The Official Partner Camps of Hale
Hale provides facilities, a health center, and activity specialists that afford participants from a variety of Greater Boston communities with opportunities to swim, boat, hike, learn about nature, and climb on our challenge courses.
The Jewish Community Center (JCC) of Greater Boston has been operating its traditional Jewish day camp on 75 acres of Hale’s property since 1957. This robust, independent program serves thousands of children each summer. Hale maintains road access and water lines for Camp Grossman and collaborates throughout the summer in various other capacities.
Hale has partnered with Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) for many decades. Aspire, its year-round program for children, teens, and adults on the autism spectrum, offers a six-week ACA-accredited day camp at Hale each summer. Design and construction of the Simches Family Center accounted for their campers’ sensory needs, and we are proud to collaborate with their leadership team in providing staff training for Hale Summer Camps.
South Shore Stars
South Shore Stars has been operating a summer camp at Hale for 40+ years. Stars primarily serves youth and families from the South Shore area. Their full-day camp serves roughly 300 campers per session and offers grades 2–6 a wide variety of outdoor activities.
Hale has partnered with Harvard’s Judge Baker Children’s Center since 2019. The organization operates Camp Baker as part of its Summer Treatment Program (STP) for children with ADHD. The 6-week day camp leverages Hale’s activity specialists to complement the work of its own highly qualified staff. Camp Baker also provide parent training groups throughout the summer to support parents and caregivers.
