Summer Program Schedule and Activities

Eagle’s Nest Summer is a fun, safe, and exciting experience for boys in which they establish friendships and enjoy outdoor activities while learning Christian principles and character. Our summer program endeavors to provide all of the boys with a framework of academic preparation in math and literacy for their next school year. Experienced staff is on hand to offer mentoring, tutoring, and encouragement to boys as they develop a life-shaping experience over the summer. We run our summer program at the Benjamin Franklin Institute located near Back Bay, where we have air-conditioned computer labs, classrooms, an outdoor basketball court, and a gated grass field. The boys leave the summer program with skills and memories that will last a lifetime.

Here’s a typical daily schedule:
