Winter Carnival 2022

Join us February 4-5!

Eaglebrook School's Winter Carnival, first held in the winter of 1925, is the second oldest of its kind in the country. Only Dartmouth College's Winter Carnival is older. On February 4, parents join their children for classes, special events, games, a play, and a concert. The weekend activities include skiing, outdoor competitions, and traditional Winter Carnival events. All students – Day & Boarding – are on campus for Winter Carnival and may leave for a long weekend with their parents after their last obligation on Saturday. Boarding Students must return by 8:00 p.m. on Monday.
*For Winter Carnival Weekend, Eaglebrook School requires that all guests be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and wear masks in all campus buildings. Younger siblings/guests not eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine must wear a mask at all times in all campus buildings. Additionally, due to the rise in Covid-19 cases in the northeast, all guests must obtain a negative Covid-19 rapid antigen within 24 hours OR a PCR test within 72 hours of arrival to campus. Home tests are acceptable.
