The Ultimate Guide to New England Summer Camps for 2022
While your memories of summer camp may evoke images of kayaking at the lake, sleeping in bunk beds in wooden cabins, or capturing the flag, the same may not be true for your child. The game has changed. Sure, there’s still plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities and marshmallow roasting—but now, the options for tailoring a program to your child’s specific needs are limitless.
Not only are there more camps than ever before—offering everything from the classic outdoorsy adventure to pre-college preparation, to performing arts intensives, and more—there’s also accreditation for camps now, ensuring that the program you choose will deliver on its promises. The American Camp Association is the only nationwide accrediting organization for camps—and camps have to meet up to 300 rigorous health and safety standards in order to become accredited. Lucky for you, the ACA’s New England branch has some of the most exciting programs—right in your backyard.
