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. 

There are a lot of specialized programs available (from robotics to bubble soccer). But today, I’m just covering the Finn and Woodward camps and CIT program.

The Southborough Recreation Department is again offering its popular morning camps. Sessions run weekly from June 26 through August 11. 

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 6. For the older kids at Woodward, some weeks feature special activities at Fay camp or field trips (like tuba sliding at Ski Ward), plus a weekly swim 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:

A CIT (counselor in training) is a camper enrolled in a specialized camp leadership program. Through practical experience CIT’s learn about behavior management, risk management, safety awareness, decision making, program planning and team building. This program is meant to develop future leaders for camp and all other areas of life. Our goal is to give CITs the opportunity to gain confidence, pride along with a sense of community and accomplishment.

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

The camps are half day with drop off beginning at 8:30 am and pickup ending at 12:30 pm. The cost is $128-160 per week.

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.
