About Our Summer Camp

The DaVinci Experience Summer Camp offers an exciting new theme each week! Your child will use their creativity and curiosity to discover something new each day in a small classroom setting with experienced teachers and support staff. At camp, your child will practice teamwork, problem-solving, and higher-level thinking strategies through hands-on activities, games, crafts, and STEM projects. Your child will have the opportunity to connect what they have learned at camp to the community through field trips, guest speakers, and adventures in nature. In one session, we may be learning how to care for different animals on a farm, then reinforce our learning on a field trip to a local farm at the end of the week. Another session could include exploring famous modern artists and creating our own sculptures. With over 40 themes, there is always something new to learn, and every child can find something they love. DaVinci camps help children to build confidence and self esteem through teamwork and problem solving.


Who should attend The DaVinci Experience Summer Camps?

DaVinci Summer Camp is designed for campers ages 4-11 (12-14 year olds qualify for our CIT program) who are interested in science, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and the arts. DaVinci is a great place for intellectually adventurous campers who want to try new things, have fun while learning, and make lifelong memories. DaVinci Summer Camps are an excellent opportunity for children who want to build their leadership and communication skills while making new friends. If your child loves hands-on activities, games, and exploring nature, DaVinci is the perfect day camp option!

What to bring to camp

We recommend children wear closed toed shoes and comfortable clothing. All children should come to camp with a water bottle, snacks, and lunch (half-day campers will NOT need lunch). If your child is staying for Aftercare, please pack additional snacks. If it is a sunny day, please send your child with sunscreen. If your child is younger (under 6) please pre-sunscreen prior to arrival.

Please bring a pair of sneakers for running games and hikes. We spend the day making messy art projects and science experiments, as well as playing games outdoors—it is important to send your child with clothes that can get dirty! We recommend packing an extra t-shirt or smock. Friday is sprinkler day, so please have your child pack a change of clothes or clothes that can get wet.

Swimming is available only at our Cousins Island site, where your camper (ages 8 +) will need to bring a swimsuit, towel, sunscreen, and water shoes.

Falmouth: Our Falmouth location, at the Falmouth Activity Center, at 190 Middle Road is NOT air conditioned. Though we realize there may be warm afternoons, we spend a great deal of time outdoors under the trees and encourage our campers to drink water to stay cool and hydrated. Be sure to provide a water bottle for your camper.

North Yarmouth: The DaVinci Experience Summer Camp partners with different towns and community centers. The town of North Yarmouth/Cumberland manages the registration and cancellation/refund policy for campers attending the North Yarmouth location at the Durham Community Center. 

 Their registration opens in the middle of April.

 We are happy to answer questions about our summer programming. Please direct any questions or concerns regarding registration or refunds to the North Yarmouth/Cumberland Summer Programming Department.

Cousin’s Island: Since we will be near the water at our Cousin’s Island location, this DaVinci Experience Summer Camp is for campers ages 8 or older.

DaVinci Experience Summer Camp Expulsion and Safety Policy

DaVinci Experience Summer Camp strives to create a safe and welcoming environment for all campers. As a result, DaVinci Experience has a zero-tolerance bullying policy.

If your child exhibits disrespectful or violent behavior (including but not limited to punching, kicking, biting, spitting, derogatory remarks, death threats, etc.) to other campers, staff, or the facility, they will be asked to leave for the day. Depending on the severity of the incident(s) they may be expelled from the camp without a refund.

In addition, should a camper pose a threat to themself or others (including but not limited to running away, not eating, not drinking water, scratching, stone-walling, refusing to participate, etc.) we will communicate with parents at pick-up, drop-off, and/or by email to discuss what a camper is experiencing during the day.

* Please note: It is not always convenient for teachers and directors to call a parent directly or immediately, as they will be with other children during camp hours. Please speak to teachers and directors at pick-up and drop-off, and look for emails from the camp towards the evening, if necessary.

  1. If you cancel more than a month in advance, you will receive a full refund minus the transaction fee (5%).

If your child needs additional supervision, please reach out to Kristen at to discuss arrangements to bring your own additional childcare help to support your child at camp.

Transferring Weeks
