Hale Summer Club offers eight weeks of activities for the whole family!

Our highly regarded swimming and boating lessons build confidence and encourage safe recreation. We offer American Red Cross swimming lessons to children ages 3 and up, and boating lessons to children ages 4 and up. Older children can enjoy canoeing and sailing on the pond, and adults are invited to schedule sailing lessons with our boating instructors.

Summer at HSC extends far beyond the waterfront, though! We also offer:

  • Youth activities such as archery at a private range, arts & crafts under a shaded pavilion, story time, sports, games, yoga, and more. HSC actively engages children of all ages for hours on end.
  • Adult activities that ensure the whole family has fun! Early risers take advantage of morning lap swim, trail running, and high-intensity interval training with cardio. During the day, parents who need a little “me time” sign kids into activities or entrust them to our Tiny Turtles childcare program. HSC makes it easy to relax in a yoga class, break a sweat in boot camp, enjoy low-impact aqua aerobics, or kick back on the beach with a good book.
  • Weeknight events include family luaus, movie nights, races, field games, campfires, night hikes, and more.

Our 2019 Daily Schedules will be available in January. Until then, take a peek at last summer’s adult and children’s schedules to get a sense of what you can do at HSC!

Special Programs

In addition to standard passes, Hale Summer Club offers a few fee-based programs.

  • Teen Program gives students entering grades six through eight an opportunity to spend the summer among peers. Its free play model encourages them to choose their own adventures and build friendships. Registration opens on January 7 for passholders and on March 4 for non-passholders. To register, download the Teen Program Registration Packet and return your completed paperwork to Hale’s Main Office.
  • Guppy Gang provides activities for four- and five-year-olds to build friendships and have fun. Every day in the Guppy Gang has a new theme, and American Red Cross lifeguards keep little ones safe: the program boasts a low children-to-staff ratio of 5:1. Online registration will be available soon. In the meantime, you can download and return the Guppy Gang Registration Packet.
  • Small Fry provides similar activities for three-year-olds. Held in August, it helps our youngest guppies celebrate summer with friends as they splash at the water’s edge. Online registration will be available soon. In the meantime, you can download and return the Small Fry Registration Packet.

Special Events

We also host a number of special events throughout the summer. Passholders receive reminder magnets with these dates in the spring, but you can see a preview of next year’s information in the image below.

To this day, I remember when I first went out on a kayak by myself. I loved being able to go wherever I wanted.

It’s Magic

But don’t take our word for it! Check out what our members have to say.

WCVB-TV Chronicle | Excursions: Family Fun (2:40–4:55)

“There is something really special about feeling like you’re leaving the world behind…I’m here with my kids, I’m here with my family, I’m out in nature, and it’s just magic.”

Wike Baby | Looking for a memorable summer? Here’s a recipe.

“It’s a magical place. If you’re tired of cobbling together a thousand activities, Hale Summer Club has the perfect recipe for a memorable summer.”

We’ve done one week so far, and to say that I’m blown away would be an understatement! Hale is awesome! I can’t even explain to you how happy we are. My son and daughter want to go all day, everyday. They’ve grown and learned so much during our time here. It’s run with such care…I know my kids are safe, and I can actually relax or do yoga and not worry. That in itself is priceless. All the counselors and volunteers are wonderful, kind, and fun. Hale is a gem…part of me wants to shout it from Blueberry Hill, but part of me doesn’t want to share this secret because it’s too good! Thank you so much for making this happen for our family. I’m starting to save money now so that we can do the whole summer next year!Jamie, Mattea, and Pryce

May I bring guests to Hale Summer Club?

Yes! Our season passes include complimentary guest passes for a limited number of guests. Guests must be accompanied by a passholder at all times. Guests will not be admitted without a passholder present. Passholders may only host up to 5 guests per day. If you run out of guest passes, you can purchase additional guest passes at the Guard Shack. Guests (as well as Day Pass visitors) receive a bracelet that they must wear at all times while at Hale Summer Club.

As a passholder, you are also eligible to rent Julia’s Place or the Carport for a birthday party, family gathering, or any other event. We charge a site fee ($50 for JP; $30 for the Carport) and user fee ($5/person) for any non-passholders. These are charged separately so you don’t use up all your complimentary guest passes. You can also choose to hire a lifeguard for an hour to run games and activities for kids for $25. All rentals must be scheduled through HSC’s director either in person or via email.

What if the weather is bad?

On rainy days, Hale Summer Club may open late or close early. Call 781-326-8985 for weather updates and changes to operating hours. Passholders may also join our Facebook group to see updates, photos, and more.

Can I hold a private event at Hale Summer Club?

Contingent upon availability, passholders are welcome to use the beach facilities for birthday parties, family gatherings, and group functions under our pavilion (Julia’s Place) or carport. Passholders must speak to the HSC director or assistant director in advance to schedule an outing or birthday party. Nominal site, parking, and guest fees apply.
