Camp Favorite is the premier sailing and water sports camp for girls in New England. Now celebrating our 56th season of instilling courage, confidence and character in girls from all over the globe, Camp Favorite offers a diverse and inclusive community, and fosters relationships in an unplugged, natural environment nestled right in the heart of Cape Cod. Our breathtaking property opens onto Long Pond in Brewster, where girls can learn to sail, windsurf, kayak and swim. Two area saltwater beaches provide the backdrop for our advanced sailing and ocean surfing programs.
The camp’s proximity to the Cape Cod Rail Trail and our extensive biking program allow girls to discover new parts of the Cape and Islands on a single trip. The camp’s staff comes from all over the world to support campers in girl-driven programs that are creative, engaging and safe. Each weekly session is unique and girls can choose their challenge! All water and biking programs are designed for skills progression year after year; programs range from beginner to advanced. In addition to the selected program activities, all campers will participate in swimming, boating, campfires, games, crafts and more. One look at a sunset from the beach, a gaze up at the stars, or the crackle of a fire will convince you that Camp Favorite is a unique and special place to spend your summer. For additional information: email or call 617-350-8335.
Hours of operation: 9 AM–4 PM. Extended care available: 7:30–9:30 AM ($10) and 4–6 PM ($15).
Every day begins with the flag ceremony, from there girls enjoy various activities ranging from swimming, arts and crafts, canoeing, fire-building, sailing, biking and so much more! Girls participate in a sing-along at lunch time, make s'mores around the campfire and make ever lasting friendships. Activities will vary each day according to the theme of the program and weather.
About the Director
Molly "Goosey" Clark can't wait to start her 13th summer at Camp Favorite, her first in the role of director. Molly has been a Girl Scout for 17 years and, at the age of 11, started attending Camp Favorite, where she learned to sail and gained important life skills like confidence and independence. Her love for camp led her to become staff, and she has worked as a camp counselor, sailing instructor, sailing manager and waterfront director. Outside of camp, Molly is currently spending a year in Moscow, Russia, where she is teaching English to kids and adults. Molly's favorite parts of camp are themed meals, jumping off the floating dock and singing around the campfire. Molly is excited to take on the role of director and spend another fabulous summer on the Cape!
