A week from today marks the last day of public school in Southborough. If it’s snuck up on you, don’t panic. There are still spots left in the town’s camps this summer.

The Southborough Recreation Department is again offering its popular half day summer camp programs at Finn and Woodward. Sessions run weekly from June 29 through August 14. (Scroll down for information on a full-day option.)

Camp at Finn School is open to children ages 2.9 (and potty trained) to those entering first grade, while the program at Woodward is open to children entering grades 2 through 5. For the older kids at Woodward, some weeks feature special activities at Fay camp and/or swimming at St. Mark’s School’s pool.

For even older kids looking for something to do, there’s the CIT program. It’s geared for children entering grades 7-9:

Too old to be a camper but too young to be a counselor? Get ahead on developing important job skills during an active week of learning games and leadership skills. CIT’s will assist counselors in our Recreational Summer Camps. Participants should be interested in working with children and possess maturity, flexibility, a strong work ethic, and the ability to have fun. The CIT program is an educational program, with a curriculum designed to develop the technical skills necessary to be an effective camp counselor. Your participation in a CIT program can lead to leadership opportunities at school, in extracurricular activities and at future jobs.

For all ages, themes of the week offer a variety of fun activities and entertainment throughout the summer. Themes this summer are:

  • Stars & Stripes Week
  • Get Set & Get Fit
  • Winter Wonderland in July
  • Carnival Week
  • Circus Up!
  • Heroes Week
  • Wild Wild West

The camps are half day with drop off beginning at 8:30 am and pickup ending at 12:30 pm. The cost is $112-140 per week.

For those of you who need a full day offering – Southborough Rec has again teamed up with Southborough Extended Day to offer a full-day option for families who need it. Kids spend the first half of the day at summer camp, and are then transported over to Extended Day for the second half (for a transportation fee of $28-35 per week). Space in the program is limited, so sign up soon.

For full details, see the program guide. Register online or drop off your form at the Recreation Department office at 21 Highland Street. (That’s the option you’ll need to use if looking to cash in a pre-paid discount voucher.) They also have an overnight mailbox outside for hand delivered forms.
