Affordable Camps, Priceless Results

Our programs deliver quality instruction in a beautiful natural environment that is free of glowing rectangles. Our campers leave with improved skills, and knowledge that will allow them to continue to improve their skills long after they leave.

A week at Slovenski Camps is a week of daily improvement. It is a week of forging memories with old friends and new. It is a week carefully balanced with advanced modern techniques of training and old-school summer camp traditions. Finally, it is a week of connecting with a more rustic, self-reliant way of living.

Combat Nature Deficit Disorder.  Send your kids to camp.

What Parents Say

"My kids love to go to camp!  Where else can they play chess, go swimming, learn to knit, and play scatterball in the same day?  Slovenski Camps nurture the whole child, body, mind and character.  The campers' role models are the most wonderful, active, inspiring counselors you can imagine.   Kids come home challenged by their experiences, and very happy."
    - Mia Dyson, Mother of two campers from Freeport, Maine

"My son attended a week of Track camp and a week of Cross Country camp last summer. He went with a group of friends from Vermont who all want to come back again next summer! A perfect blend of structured activity and free wheeling fun. They can't wait for summer 2014."
- Rachel Atkins

"My son loved it! So much so, that he wants to return next summer. Good food, beautiful place to learn and make new friends."
- Dafne Lamas
