At Marcus Lewis Day Camp, kids can tailor their activities to match their interests, with Junior Discovery campers (grades K through 5) making decisions each day as a group and Teen Exploration campers (grades 6 through 10) choosing electives individually. Weekly themes add to the fun, and specialized camps (cooking, golf, and dance, among others) allow kids to really immerse themselves in their favorite activities.
Devens. $474-$598 per week. Weekly sessions run June 23-Aug. 15. Five campers per counselor. 978-929-9997; marcuslewisdaycamp.com
