Winter Carnival 2023

Join us February 3-4!

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 3, 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, February 4. Boarding Students must return by 8:00 p.m. on Monday.

PLEASE NOTE: Students in the String Orchestra, Jazz Band, and the Ad Libs should have dinner on campus on Friday night in order to be ready for the Evening of the Arts.
