Frequently Asked Questions
How many sessions can I register my child for?
You can register your child for as many as you would like.
What age groups can attend the camp?
Campers must fall between ages 7-12 years old as of July 1st. Due to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Minimum Standards for Recreational Camps for Children, there is a required ratio of supervisory staff to campers for children under the age of 7. In addition, in consideration of the safety of the children enrolled, the structure of the camp activities is specific to children in the 7-12 year old age range.
Is there a discount for Boston College Faculty, Staff or Alumni?
No. A $50 discount is offered to families enrolling three or more children per session. The discount is applied to child 3,4,5 at a rate of $200. Additionally, discounted extended day program registration is offered at a rate of $50 for the 3,4 and 5th child of each family.
