It’s time for summer camp! Camps are looking a little different this year; many camps have adjusted their capacity and daily activities to help keep campers and staff safe. Please know we are open to out-of-the-box ideas when it comes to summer programs this year. If you find something that suits your child, please let us know! In addition to considering a day camp, you may want to look into virtual camps or “camps-in-a-box” that are delivered to your home for your children to enjoy.
The list below is just sampling of camps in RI and MA for you to consider. Keep googling to find more ideas! Please check the camps’ websites and facebook pages for the most up-to-date information on availability. Many camps offer financial aid.
