Maybe it is a bit early to ask, but what do families around here do for full day summer camp? I’ve got 3 kids ages 6, 8 and 10. This will be our first summer in Southborough and I’m looking for a fun, affordable suggestion that involves swimming. Suggestions welcome.

My kids loved the YMCA camp in Hopkinton. Then when they were older they loved Boy Scout and Girl Scout camps, both day and resident.

Mine too, even the one that was super reluctant to go. He had a ball and they really are good with the kids. I can’t recommend it enough.

I don’t like signing up for too many camps. My daughter loves consistency.
She loved girl scout camp in Ashland. Planning on doing it again this summer.
And the school bus that picks up and drops off is a life saver.

We’ve also done kidsborough and she enjoyed that as well.

Consider Southborough Extended Day.
They have a great summer program that includes supervised play and activities at one of Southborough’s schools, with lots of field trips to keep things exciting. They go to pools or state parks regularly for swimming.

Pilgrim Day camp in Framingham offers half, full and extended day options and costs around $600 for a two week full day session. The swimming there is in a pool.

Are your kids in scouts? My son loved cub scout camp. The camp is up in Bolton but the bus picks up and drops off in the town house parking lot. They had swimming every day. There is also a bus to girl scout camp that picks up at the same place but I am less familiar with that.

Any update on the iPad-gate issue and the 1:1 program?
This article made me immediately think about our own struggles.
