BEVERLY, MA—It may be difficult to think about summer while shoveling heaps of heavy snow, but it’s not too soon to be preparing summer plans.

On Saturday, February 5, 2011, from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Glen Urquhart School—a K-8 coed independent school at 74 Hart Street in Beverly—will host its 23rd annual camp fair, SummerScape, featuring representatives from over 70 camps throughout the greater North Shore and nationwide.

“The camps we have here are unbelievable. They provide such unique opportunities for kids today,” said Sue Hepler, 48, director of the Annual Fund and Community Relations at Glen Urquhart. “They have fun, make friends and have their own new adventure for a week.” 

The fair, which features programs for all ages, includes day camps, residential camps, traditional, sports, science, art, theatre and specialized enrichment programs as well as community service opportunities.
