Summer Day Camp

file

Keep your kids active, socially engaged, and entertained at Boston College Recreational Day Camp! Here children will have a safe and fun place where they can participate in a variety of games, activities, and sports, hang with old friends and meet new ones.

Kickball, water balloon games, and pool time are just a few of the things that keep our camp schedule packed!  Activities will be varied on a daily basis to make sure the campers have opportunities to play some traditional favorites and learn some awesome new games as well.  Our camp counselors work hard to make sure everyone has fun, stays safe, and enjoys their time at camp.  Check out some of the fun we had last summer in our Flickr album!

As with the Boston College tradition, we strive to follow the motto ‘Ever to excel’. Our staff is dedicated to providing the best camp experience possible.  Each session is dedicated to give the children a healthy outlet for their energy, a fun environment to meet friends, and a safe place to be themselves.

What’s New This Summer?


 
You will notice a few things that have changed this year with the format of camp. We are now offering a reduced price for the first week because the camp only runs for four days during the week of July 4. We have also greatly enhanced our Extended Day Program for your convenience.
 
1.   We have extended the pick up time to 5:30 pm at your request
2.   We are now offering group lessons for campers enrolled in the Extended Day Program
 
This year at camp for an extra $15 added to the Extended Day Camper price your camper could get two group swim lessons or two group tennis lessons during the week. Tennis is offered on Monday/Wednesday 3:30-4pm and Swimming is offered on Tuesday/Thursday 3:30-4pm. If you would like your child to attend both tennis and swimming lessons the cost would be $30 added on to the extended day program.

Group Swim Lessons will consist of ten kids or fewer and children will learn fundamental aquatic skills and stroke development from one of our qualified instructors. Group tennis lessons will also be limited to ten kids or fewer and will cover basic tennis techniques, strokes and practice drills.  Both lessons are schedule 3:30-4pm.

About Extended Day

Extended Day runs after camp from 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm each day.  It gives parents a chance to finish up the work day, and it is a good opportunity for the kids to wind down.  Extended day takes on a variety of looks over the week, rotating between board games, more relaxing activities, gimp, and watching movies.

For an extra $15, campers enrolled in the Extended Day Program can spend part of those afternoons (3:30-4pm) taking group swim lessons (Tuesdays and Thursdays) or tennis lessons (Mondays and Wednesdays). If you would like your child to attend both tennis and swimming lessons, the cost would be $30 added to the Extended Day Price. Prices listed are per one week session.
