Summers At The Academy

Summers at Ridgefield Academy offer children ages 2 through 14 a variety of fun and engaging programs that have been created specifically with children in mind. Our beautiful 42-acre campus provides the perfect backdrop for nature exploration, soccer and lacrosse clinics on our turf field, rocketry, or sliding down our 15-foot water slide. Children can explore STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) challenges, rock band jams, cooking activities, science fun, and more in our state-of-the-art digital media center, gymnasium, indoor theater, music room, and kitchen facilities. Preschool-aged campers have their own age-appropriate water play area while older students enjoy swimming at a local pool to cool off during hot afternoons. Our staff, which is comprised of experienced educators, know what it means to have fun and infuse learning into every activity!
