HOLA Prospective Camper Application

Thank you for your interest in sending your camper(s) to Hale Outdoor Learning Adventures (HOLA) this year.

HOLA is a 5-week day camp for students in Boston Public Schools (BPS). It runs from Monday, July 8–Friday, August 9, 2024.
  • Our program operates Monday–Friday at Hale Education in Westwood, MA.
  • The camp day runs from 8:45 AM–3:45 PM.
  • We offer bus transportation, breakfast, and lunch at no cost to campers.

HOLA campers must be:
  • in 3rd, 4th or 5th grade (school year 2023–2024)
  • enrolled in Boston Public Schools (with active BPS ID#)
  • able to attend all 5 weeks of HOLA
Application Deadline: March 15, 2024
  • Applications are reviewed and accepted in order of submission. 
  • We offer priority to applicants from our partner schools, and then enroll students outside of those schools as capacity allows.
  • Applicants who submit information after March 29 will be placed on our waitlist. If space becomes available, a Hale staff member will contact the waitlisted applicant.






We are so proud of HOLA and the impact it has on the lives of our campers and everyone involved with the program. HOLA operates for five weeks, which allows for genuine relationship building, growth in academic skills, development of confidence, perseverance, and so much more.

In order to accomplish this, we ask that our families fully commit to HOLA. Five weeks may seem like a bit of a commitment, but our funding (and your camper's development) is dependent on consistent participation. If you anticipate travel or have other summer activities lined up, we ask that you consider a different Hale Summer Camp or apply for HOLA in a future season. This ensures every open spot is fully enjoyed by a camper who can join us for all five weeks.

Thank you for completing our application! We will be collecting applications through March 15. You will hear back from us on the status of your camp enrollment by March 29.  We will then officially enroll you in our system. The next step will be camper paperwork and bus registration. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Jackie Ross, Director of Camp and Youth Programs at jross@hale.education or at 781-326-1770.
