Each listing includes a link to the camp website for more information, or you can call the camp directly with the phone number provided. (Please note: Some camps may not run without critical mass of enrollments, be sure to ask about this before you register.)
All are welcome for fun, community, and basketball! Cheer on Park’s Boys and Girls Varsity Basketball Teams as they take on Applewild School, Bancroft School, and Meadowbrook School. Throughout the tournament we will be selling Hoopfest t-shirts, raffle tickets, and baked goods in the West Gym Lobby. All proceeds will support a charity chosen by the Park Service Council. This is a great way for your athletes to support those less fortunate while having fun with their friends.
Following the tournament, players, coaches and parents will gather in the Dining Room for an Awards Luncheon.

Before the event, check outthis article "How Can We Talk Frankly about Money in Independent Schools?" and be sure to click on the links within the article for an even deeper dive into this issue. We'll read case studies, try to answer some of the most popular questions our children ask us about money, and work as a community to address our own issues with class. Open to everyone!

Imagine a simple framework that helps you raise empathetic and skillful kids. The Collaborative Problem Solving approach, an evidence-based model developed by the Think:Kids program at MGH, brings out the best in both you and your child and builds skills such as flexibility, frustration tolerance, and problem-solving.
Please join us for the All School Evening, and let us know if you need child care. You are welcome even if you don’t RSVP, but we do need to plan in advance for childcare providers so that we can provide the appropriate number of adults per child.
