Welcome to Summer Session
Cardigan’s Summer Session offers an educational and recreational experience for boys and girls in grades three through nine.
Join us for a transformative summer experience of adventure, academic enrichment and personal growth! Cardigan’s Summer Session attracts boys and girls from across the country and world, inviting them to The Point for three and six-week sessions where each individual is celebrated and elevated. Students come to Cardigan for the unique New England experience and leave with friendships that last a lifetime.
Our morning class offerings cover a wide range of topics at all levels that will inspire students through hands-on learning and innovative design to prepare them for their academic pursuits beyond Summer Session. With a 3:1 faculty to student ratio, classes are tailored to each individual and include diverse topics such as ceramics, forensics, creative writing, computer coding, and wilderness survival, as well as traditional offerings like SSAT Prep and English as a second language.
Afternoon and evening activities provide students with opportunities to pursue passions, conquer challenges and develop new skills. Cardigan’s beautiful lakeside campus and the surrounding New Hampshire landscape are the perfect backdrop for outdoor adventures and activities like: mountain biking, hiking, paddle boarding, tennis, rocket building and drama and weekend trips to Whale’s Tale Water Park and Fisher Cats baseball games.
Many students return to Summer Session for multiple summers as they are drawn to renew their connections with peers that share the bond of this special community and build upon the rewarding experiences that have catalyzed their independence and self-confidence.
Don't take our word for it. Please view the short video below to hear more from one of our parents.

See you this summer!
