In 1966, Lexington Christian Academy moved to its current location on Bartlett Avenue in Lexington. Grateful for the community’s support, the Academy wanted to give back. LCA opened its campus to the local children and their families, inviting them to come to a structured day camp program and literally enjoy the breezes of the neighboring meadows. It was here that Meadow Breeze Day Camp was born and, years later, is one of the top summer camp experiences for children and families from Middlesex County including; Lexington, Arlington, Bedford, Belmont, Burlington, Cambridge, Waltham, Winchester, Woburn and the rest of the Greater Boston Area.
Shortly after the official start of the Day Camp, the Community Swim & Tennis Club began, offering further opportunities for summer enjoyment.
Over the years, the camp grew to accommodate eight weeks of campers, boys and girls ages 5 through 13. The structured program has grown to include tennis and swimming lessons, archery, sports skills, rock-wall climbing, and a series of “creatives” such as artwork, science experiments, and other academically-oriented programming. Free-choice activities are also arranged and supervised, as well as snack and lunch times.
As the camp grew in function and popularity, “extended day” options were made available to families that needed an early drop-off or late pick-up for their camper(s). Additional programming was also made available, including the current Lions Sports Camps and Summer Academy programs like drama and pottery.
