Summertimes offers two distinct types of summer programming: Day Camps and Academic Programs.
We Can’t Contain
Why Choose Summertimes?
Offering more than 100 different sessions of camps and summer academic classes, Summertimes has something for everyone! In our specialty camps, campers can paddle and fish on daily excursions, act in a musical production, explore their love of Harry Potter, create works of art, or work with drones and rockets. Students who want to hone their athletic skills can play tennis, field hockey, lacrosse, or flag football.
Can’t decide on a specialty or sport? Summertimes Day Camp is a traditional day camp with numerous daily activities for children in rising grades K through 5. Summer Academics students will be able to brush up on their math and writing skills, take religion courses for credit, learn valuable financial life skills, or take an SAT prep course. One-week sessions for camps, extended care, in-person and Distance Learning summer academic classes, and an optional lunch program offer much-needed flexibility for busy summer schedules.Learn More

Why Campers Love Summertimes
Summertimes is what camp is supposed to be: FUN! Campers get to make new friends, learn from enthusiastic and engaging counselors and camp directors, and try their hand at new activities. Summer camp should not be “one size fits all.” The variety of camps and classes that Summertimes offers gives campers choice! In addition, our one-week sessions give campers the flexibility to pursue different interests throughout the summer.
Why Staff Love Summertimes
Our staff simply love working with campers! Seeing campers experience new and exciting interests is as much fun for the counselors as it is for the children. “I love seeing kids’ faces light up when they find something they enjoy.” (Karen Pineda, Summertimes counselor)
“As a child, Summertimes was an integral part of my life and I looked forward to it every summer. Working as an instructor has allowed me to continue to be a part of an amazing program and ensure that children have the same experience.” (Grace O’Connell, Summertimes Instructor)
