Springfield Summer Camps 2017
Welcome to Springfield Summer Camps, an initiative of the Springfield Parks and Recreation Department. We are pleased to offer a traditional day camp experience for children 4 – 12 years old. Campers can expect a well-rounded and diverse camp experience, with participation in programs ranging from sports, to arts and crafts, baking, active games, science activities and cooperative programming. Participants will enjoy visits from special guests, field trips, as well as some beach days throughout the summer.
Springfield Summer Camps strives to provide the ideal camp environment and a unique opportunity for children to learn valuable skills while establishing new friendships. Programming is designed to be challenging, personally enriching, educational, and most importantly, fun. We believe camp provides an opportunity for personal growth, increased self-esteem, skill development and lasting friendships. We hope to create a space for campers in which they can both learn to work cooperatively while gaining confidence in their unique abilities as individuals.
