Summer Camp

GCS Camp

Our Groton Community Summer Camp provides a summer of exciting experiences for young campers 3 through 7 years of age. We follow the same philosophy as our school year program, which strives to provide each child with the happiest, most positive first camp experience. Camp activities include music, arts & crafts, construction opportunities, water fun, sports, creative dramatics, science & sensory explorations, and nature study.  We plan frequent special guests and events throughout the summer, as well!

We welcome the community to join us in the summer!  Summer Camp Registration typically occurs in April and/or May.   Contact us regarding availability!



Our GCS Camp Program operates for Full Day Families on Mondays through Thursdays, from 8 AM to 5 PM.  Camp is closed in observance of Independence Day.

For Half Day Camp in 2024, we will have two-week sessions, from 8:45 AM to Noon on Tuesdays through Thursdays (with an exception for the week of July 4th).  Camp is closed in observance of Independence Day.

What Our Families Say:

“Our daughter loved Camp and came home each day so tired, but so excited, with stories about the terrific activities.  She especially loved when they played on the water slide on hot days!  At the end of her sessions at camp we were given a huge envelope with all of her art projects.  We were really impressed by how they integrated the camp theme for that summer into the art and activities as a teaching opportunity.  So much thought clearly goes into the planning and operation of Camp.  She still talks about her camp experience almost a year later!”
