Build Confidence & Friendships

At Cody we have created a fun-filled and positive atmosphere in which campers can develop the many facets of their unique and individual potential. Cody reinforces a sense of fair play and respect for one’s self and others. The Cody experience helps children learn to live with others and develop their self-esteem, independence, and a sense of responsibility and accomplishment. Ours is a positive and supportive environment for campers to learn new skills and navigate new experiences.

Swimming, Waterskiing, Rowing and Tennis

In addition to 30+ activities and off-site trips, each day campers focus on improving one or more of our Core Activities (tennis, swimming & waterskiing). Whether they’re getting up on skis for the first time or perfecting a serve, campers receive individualized instruction from our staff who work to develop, improve, and inspire a love of these life-long skills.

We actually stumbled upon an consulting article written by one of our parents using our waterskiing program as a metaphorical case study. Upon learning that one of our campers had been unable to get up on skis at another camp, our staff broke down the basic mechanics and had him up skiing!

Outdoor Adventure Trips

Camp Cody offers a well-rounded and progressive tripping program that includes lower scenic falls, echo lake park, diana’s bath, rock climbing, zip lining, monkey trunks and several overnights. Each two-week session includes a bunk trip (e.g. hiking Mt. Washington), outdoor adventure trip (white water rafting) and waterpark trip (Watercountry!) that varies depending on age, gender and years at camp. In doing so, each summer and two week session is entirely unique. Every year there are new challenges, trips and adventures!

Safety & Excellence

There’s no more important responsibility for a Camp Director than the health and safety of campers and staff. We have several wonderful nurses who live onsite and take great care of everyone. Plus, there are always the occasional parents jostling to trade in their white coats for Camp Cody t-shirts and help out.

We consistently score the highest marks and rates from both annual state inspections and the American Camping Association.

Camping Legacy

Cody is a premier New England summer camp in continuous operation for nearly 90 years. It has been family owned and operated for three third generations. With millions invested in the last decade alone, Cody provides campers with one of the best equipped summer camps in the country. All of our buildings are either new or have recently undergone major expansion and refinishing. Activity equipment is constantly updated to keep it “state-of-the-art”.
