School Vacation Camp

Harvard typically offers a School Vacation Camp program to give parents options during the February and April public-school vacation weeks and one hard-to-cover week at the end of the summer. The program generally runs on three campuses: Cambridge, the Harvard Longwood Campus, and at Harvard Business School.

The program is open to the children ages 5 to 12 of benefits-eligible faculty and staff on a regular Harvard payroll.

Please note that due to space constraints, there are a limited number of spots.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not able to offer the camp in August 2020. Please visit the summer camp page for information and resources on other summer child care resources.
