Area schools have taken their classes on-line but many summer camps are holding out hope that they’ll be able to be in session this summer, most likely with some adaptations to ensure safety for all involved (the children, family members, administrators and camp counselors).
Youth Services published its Summer Resources Calendar 2020 in April, not knowing how many of the camps listed would actually be in session come June.
“Parents and grandparents really depend on area summer camps to provide structured play and learning during the summertime as well as childcare while parents are working,” notes Russell Bradbury-Carlin, Youth Services’ Executive Director. “We’re hoping that as COVID-19 testing becomes more widespread, it will allow at least some camps in Windham County to be able to open this summer,” stated Bradbury-Carlin. “Fortunately, summer camps know all about reinvention and putting the needs of the families it serves first!”
Summer Camp listings on the Calendar cover a range of ages and interests, from circus arts, to music, nature and tennis, as well as overnight camps such as Camp Waubanong and Green Mountain Camp for Girls.
Please contact individual camps for the latest information on openings/closings. Youth Services is maintaining an updated list on this webpage below.
The Summer Camp Calendar is sponsored by Youth Services Pacesetters: The Richards Group, Brattleboro Subaru, and GS Precision.
