About Us

A Fun, Safe Summer for Your Child

Camps Pequot & Sherwood and Pioneer Village provide programs designed to engage campers in nurturing their physical and emotional growth. Through recreation, sports, nature and arts programs we create an atmosphere where campers can explore their interests while building character and friendships. Campers and staff are a diverse group of people coming from all over the U.S.— and all around the world.

Dedicated Staff

Both parents and campers claim the strongest element of Incarnation Camp’s program is its team of dedicated counselors and staff. A one-to-four staff to camper ratio ensures that our campers are supervised at all times. Eighty percent of our staff are former Incarnation Camp campers and nearly half of our staff returns each summer. Staff members are carefully chosen on the basis of maturity, responsibility, and experience. Training is provided to further develop leadership skills, personal sensitivity, and special understanding for childrens’ needs.

Food

The camp’s food service includes three balanced and kid-friendly meals provided each day, and served family style to all campers and staff. All meals are planned and prepared by qualified professionals who know kids. A salad bar is offered during lunch and vegetarian options are provided to those that require it. Campers are encouraged to try a little bit of everything and second helpings are always available. Incarnation Camp emphasizes that meal times should be a relaxed and enjoyable break from camp activities. At the end of meals the dining halls are filled with song and laughter.

Health and Safety

The safety of all campers is our prime concern. Campers and staff are required to wear life jackets while boating, helmets when horseback riding, and harnesses when using the ropes course. All activities are always supervised by properly trained and certified staff. Registered nurses staff our well-equipped health center and provide routine care and emergency treatment. In addition, we have local pediatricians on 24-hour call. Shoreline Emergency Medical Clinic is located only five minutes away in case of a serious accident or illness, and Middlesex Hospital is only a 20-minute drive. At the camp, all units have a first aid kit as well as staff certified in American Red Cross First Aid and CPR to ensure that immediate needs are met quickly.

“The most successful institution I’ve ever been involved with… I went to and worked at the camp for 15 years, which was not an uncommon tenure. Such was our fierce love of the place that we just kept coming back.”
