Hun Camp

Best Summer Camp for Kids!

Hun Camp is the Best Summer Day Camp!

Campers Create Their Own Games at Hun Camp!

"Hun Camp is a wonderful, special place with caring, fun, and warm adults who provide an excellent experience for my children."

- Hun Camp Parent
 
Hun Camp is built around what campers want to do; where making up games and songs is part of the routine; and where the counselors are genuinely happy to be part of the extraordinary summer experience. Come join us at the best summer camp in Princeton!
Registration Opens January 1, 2019. See You Next Summer! 

At Hun Camp, we share our values of kindness, respect, and cooperation with each Hun Camper and inspire campers to have fun. From our innovative games, themed weeks and dining hall lunches, to our culminating talent show, we provide a safe environment for campers to unleash their imagination, build lasting friendships, and capture memories that will last a lifetime. Our veteran staff of Hun faculty are assisted by aspiring educators, many of whom were campers themselves. Together, they give campers the ability to push their limits and gain new life skills through swimmings lessons, organized athletics, and experiential education. The result is a lifelong Hun Camp community. Come join us!

Rising 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th Graders

For rising 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders, we offer the ability to combine Hun Summer School courses with Hun Camp or Hun Sports Camps including baseball, soccer, and basketball, all of which are coached by Hun’s varsity coaches. For this option, register for any of the first-period Middle School courses, including SSAT Prep, Creative Writing, or Pre-Algebra, that end at 10:00 a.m.  Your child can then choose either a half day of day camp or enroll in a half day of one of our sports camps!
