Summertime Means Playtime at Canterbury
Make Plans for Canterbury Summers!
Canterbury Summers offers six weeks of day camp for rising K-5th grade students. Families have the option to drop in for one week or book them all.
***New This Year: Canterbury Summers Jr. is six weeks of day camp for rising PreK students.
Canterbury Summers and Summers Jr. offer an experiential and age-appropriate program including:
- Skill-building on facilities across Canterbury’s dynamic 37-acre campus, from the playground to the pond.
Leadership and character development woven into daily activities. These life skills such as respect, kindness, communication, and cooperation are presented in a special experiential curriculum designed to help students thrive. Canterbury's life skills curriculum is based on the character and leadership development program pioneered by Kieve-Wavus Education and outlined in their guide, "Kindness and Respect".
Most importantly: lots of PLAY and FUN!
Canterbury Summers and Summers Jr. will offer an early bird price of $285 a week until the end of May. After June 1st, camps will cost $300 a week. The exception will be the first week of camp, which is $240 for the week due to the shortened week.
Flexible payment options are available for multi-week reservations. In addition to paying for all camp weeks at the time of checkout, parents can make a $50 deposit per camp at checkout, and we will automatically deduct the remaining balance for each week three days prior to the start of the camp session.

Meet the Canterbury Summers Director
Tom Hartenstein is a 20-year educator in Wake County Public Schools and for 14 summers directed a large sleep-away camp in Maine. As his family has grown, he has placed more importance on staying close to home and family during the summer, so he is excited to be part of the Canterbury team as Director of Canterbury Summers.
Tom grew up in Miami, Fla., and moved to North Carolina after college to pursue teaching and mountain biking. While in North Carolina, he met his wife Terrill, also a 20-year educator in Wake County. They live in Raleigh with their three children, Andy and Jake (10), and Eliza(2).
