In addition to the Day Camp program, campers can also try Art Camp, Sports Camp, Circus Camp, Robotics Camp, and Basketball Camp. Harvey RISE is an academic enrichment program with in-person instruction designed to introduce students in grades 6-10 to a variety of unique, interesting, and engaging subjects and topics in a nurturing and positive environment. Subjects this summer include Coding, Acting and Theater, Outdoor Exploration, Creative Writing, and Japanese Language & Culture. All courses are taught by the Harvey faculty.

Harvey Summer Camp has also partnered with SpeakWell, a youth leadership and public speaking program that helps students build growth mindsets, confidence, self-esteem, focus, and productive speaking and life skills. This summer two programs are being offered -- Basketball Camp with retired NBA player John Wallace, and Theater Camp with "13 Reasons Why" and "Homeland" actor Amy Hargreaves. Both SpeakWell camps run the week of July 18-22.

Harvey Summer Camp offers a fun-filled summer for campers and the opportunity to learn while having fun. To learn more, visit Harvey Summer Camp.

Goats at Harvey

Passersby on Route 22 the past two weeks near the entrance to The Harvey School may have had to look twice to make sure they saw what they saw … a herd of goats traversing the school’s 125-acre campus, but the 33 goats are indeed there, making their way to munch on much of the invasive vegetation as part of a special initiative of the Bedford 2030 in partnership with the school.
