Summer Programs are uniquely designed for students and families looking for a specific program. We are working with local organizations and faculty to provide many different programs and offerings.

Counselor-in-Training (C.I.T) Program2024-02-26T18:40:24+00:00

The four-week progression will enable the CIT to explore all aspects of Wheeler Summer Camp. The program involves daily training topics for basic counselor skills, personal and team building initiatives, group and activity observations, and ending with hands-on experience rotating in an assigned group and activity.

The final part of the training will be evaluated by the direct supervisor (group/activity head counselor) and the CIT Coordinators. The criteria for evaluation will be reviewed during the CIT’s first week of camp. These evaluations will be used to decide who will be considered for a Junior Counselor position. There is no guarantee that once the CIT has successfully completed the program, they will be hired by Wheeler Summer Camp. We employ a limited number of junior counselors (between 16 & 17 years old) to ensure the appropriate number of adult staff to supervise the campers and junior counselors. We may not always have an available position.

To be considered for the CIT program, the aspiring CIT must call the office at (508) 336-8377 to request an application. 

Fee and Program Dates:

$200 (July 8, 2024 – August 2, 2024) 

CITs must attend ALL 4 weeks (no exceptions).

Hamilton Summer Program2023-12-15T18:52:14+00:00

The Hamilton Summer Program is open to all rising 2nd to 7th-graders. It is a half-day program that features classes taught by Hamilton School faculty, and it offers a small class size, with a maximum of six children per class. The program fee is $2,450 for 4 weeks of courses focused on literacy, including Orton-Gillingham work, fluency, reading comprehension, and written expression. They also include science workshops that support literacy skills and will occur throughout the weeks. There will be a mid-morning recess each day, and we will provide a snack. 

*School testing, a neuro-psych evaluation, or a Hamilton Institute reading screening is required to determine if the program is appropriate for your child.

  • A full day of programming is available if you enroll your child in Wheeler Summer Camp. This additional cost includes transportation from our Providence Campus to our farm Campus in Seekonk, MA, for the afternoon camp session. You can select the entire 4 weeks or choose your camper to attend just session 2 or just session 3.
