Important Details

Summer Shore offers one-week, half-day sessions from: June 19 - 23; June 26 - 30; August 14 - 18; August 21 - 25. Morning and afternoon sessions can be combined for a full-day camp experience, with lunch included for a small additional charge. Several special full-day programs, which include lunch, are also offered throughout the summer.

A wide variety of morning enrichment classes/sports camps are available from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Choose from several age-appropriate classes in which your child will have the chance to make new friends, explore new interests, and be grouped with campers of similar grade level. Classes range from technology, arts, sports, outdoor education and literacy.

Summer Shore’s afternoon program takes place from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. Similar to the morning enrichment classes, a variety of enrichment classes are offered to campers of all ages. Classes range from technology, arts, sports, outdoor education and literacy.

For an additional $40 per week, all campers in Summer Shore half-day camps can spend the lunch hour (12:00 - 1:00 p.m.) at a supervised lunch and recess session called “Lunch Buddies.” During this hour, campers will have a supervised lunch, games, movie, and/or playground time together! Campers must bring their own nut-free, bagged lunch.

Before-camp care for children enrolled in Summer Shore sessions is available at no charge beginning at 8:00 a.m. After-camp care is available between 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. for an additional $50 per week (prorated for less than a full week).

Thursdays of each week are designated water days! When summer heats up, our campers will be ready to splish and splash with sprinklers, slip and slides, and water balloons! Your child should wear his or her bathing suit on Thursdays and bring a towel and change of clothes.

Summer Shore will meet as an entire camp in the morning right after drop-off (9:00 a.m.), after lunch (1:00 p.m.), and in the afternoon right before carpool (4:00 p.m.) to do a fun camp activity and camp cheer!

Individual enrichment classes or full-day camp experience carpool and pick-up will be by Shore’s flagpole area (adjacent to the Oval).

Special Full-Day Programs

Several standalone, full-day class offerings are available throughout the summer, including Drobots, 3D Lacrosse, Boston Soccer Academy, and Boston Children’s Theatre. Program schedules may vary from Shore sports and education camps.
