It’s the time of year when families look to start nailing down camp plans for the summer. So, before the program fills up, I’m reminder readers about Southborough Recreation’s summer camp.
As I posted previously, this will be the first summer that Rec is holding a full day summer camp. They are also still offering a half day option for 3-6 year olds and CITs.
Camp and CIT options cover ages 3-15, though they will be split by age groups. (Note about the younger ones: Campers must be potty trained.)

Each day will boast a variety of traditional camp activities for your child that include but are not limited to sports, arts & crafts, special events, on-site entertainers, and more!

Rec does still plan to bring in special visitors to help with the fun. As usual, they’ll be organizing the camps around weekly themes. This summer, those are:
