The success of the summer is all about our caring, dedicated, and energetic staff. The Wheeler summer team includes a mix of Wheeler faculty, young adults, and local students that all have an interest in working with children this summer. Our summer team will spend a week training for the summer and all staff will become CPR and first aid certified.
Wheeler Summer programs take place on the School’s two campuses, the “Farm” acquired by the School’s founder Mary C. Wheeler in 1912 and the Providence Campus. It is home to the Wheeler Summer Camp, adventure programs, and other Specialty Camps. Located in Seekonk, Massachusetts, 15 minutes from Providence, this is the quintessential summer camp experience where kids can find all kinds of outdoor fun. This gorgeous 120-acre property features beautiful woodlands, classrooms, a community garden, high and low ropes challenge course, open fields, trails, wetlands, and an ecological preserve. Our athletic facilities include eight multi-use fields, eight tennis courts, a heated 25-meter outdoor swimming pool, and a field house with three full-size multi-sport courts.
Wheeler Summer has exceptional facilities on both our Providence campus and Farm campus in Seekonk. From athletics to the arts, Wheeler provides state-of-the-art gymnasiums, theaters, studios, athletic fields, swimming pool, ropes course, and much more.
At Wheeler Summer, safety is our number one priority! We partner with PODS Swimming to provide the highest quality and safety to our aquatics program. In addition, our camp staff are trained in first aid and CPR. Wheeler Summer is directed by a nurse (RN) team for the summer. Each day, a Health Supervisor is on staff, and Wheeler Summer works closely with the local Board of Health.
