Summer Day Camp Program 2024

We are so excited to be planning activities for the 2024 summer and so excited to welcome back our participants! We will soon be announcing our New and Returning staff line-up as well as a sample of what to expect this summer. Ashland Summer Day Camp welcomes both residents and non-residents to participate in the town’s extensive summer camp program.

The Ashland Parks and Recreation Summer Day Camp Program provides summer programming primarily for the children, with children from surrounding towns accommodated on a space available basis. Our program incorporated academic and enrichment activities while encouraging interpersonal and interpersonal growth in a safe environment.

Programming is designed to encompass the physical, emotional, social, cognitive, and individual needs of each child. These programs and events are designed to incorporate the philosophy that recreation and activities are for everyone, while introducing new experiences and fundamental skills for life-long leisure activities.

Participants of the Summer Day Camp Program are grouped based upon the grade level each child is entering in the fall.
