Summer 2021 Day Camp

Due to the ongoing global pandemic, Campus Recreation will not be offering our Summer Day Camp in 2021. At this time, we anticipate most youth programs will return in Fall 2021 and Summer Day Camp in 2022, but this is subject to public health guidance at that time.

For our most updated youth programming available, visit our Youth Programs page.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How many sessions can I register my child for?
A. You can register your child for as many as you would like. 

Q. What age groups can attend the camp?
A. Campers must fall within the age range 7 - 12 years old as of the first day they intend to attend camp to be eligible to participate. 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.

Q. Do you offer junior councilor positions to current high school students?
A. No. Each of our camp councilors is required to be at least 18 years of age or a high school graduate, provide a resume that includes the past 5 years of work experience (such as childcare, nanny experience, education majors), three (3) positive letters of reference from individuals of no relation, and passing of CORI/SORI background checks.

Q. Does your camp qualify as a flexible spending account (FSA) or dependent care expense?
The cost of the camp may qualify as a tax deductible dependent care expense. Please contact your tax consultant. For further questions, contact Member Services at 617-552-0797.
