At Headfirst Summer Camps, we design and deliver carefully-curated programs which entertain, challenge, and inspire.

Our HQ team works tirelessly year-round to set us up for success on-site, but it’s only once our seasonal team steps in to bring to life the exceptional camp experience we’re known for that the magic really happens.

Our squad of counselors, leaders, lifeguards, and aquatics instructors don’t just punch the clock over the summer, they put their time and talents to good use building camp communities where active learning environments promote transformational discovery.
