About Hillside/ Clearpool Camp

Outdoor exploration paired with unique farm and wildlife activities enrich the Hillside program. Over 160 acres of natural beauty include a sandy canoe launch along the Great Swamp and the Green Chimneys Farm & Wildlife Center, where campers make furry and feathered friends with 300+ animals. An Olympic-sized indoor pool means swimming in almost any weather.

For more than 40 years, Green Chimneys’ day camp has blended great camp traditions with dynamic outdoor experiences to create exciting and educational summers full of memories to last a lifetime.

Miles of open green space provides ample room for sports and outdoor activities as well as experiential learning. The 3.5-acre natural lake features a 30-foot waterfront for campers to splash, swim and boat. Hands-on nature and skill-building activities help campers develop environmental awareness and new personal tools.
