Beaver Summer Programs at the Beaver Country Day School in Chestnut Hill are known for their highly specialized summer activities (circus camp, anyone?), but the General Camp also has plenty to offer. Younger campers (ages 3 to 5) get to play on equipment and fields scaled down to their size; older kids (6 to 12) can choose their own electives throughout the day.
Chestnut Hill. $890 to $1,060 per session in the General Camp. Two-week sessions run June 23-Aug. 15. About four campers per counselor. 617-738-2750; bcdcamp.org
