When school closes for the summer, the Club offers several summer programs. With day programs running at both our Elson Clubhouse and Camp Ramsbottom, located in Rehoboth, MA, we offer an array of opportunities for youth to stay engaged throughout the summer.

Camp Ramsbottom

The Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket’s Camp Ramsbottom, located in Rehoboth, Massachusetts, features 160 acres of summertime fun. Summer programs at Camp Ramsbottom are offered to youth ages, 6-13, and run from June through August in four two-week sessions.

Camp Ramsbottom boasts everything you might want in a summer camp including: an adventure course, archery, arts & crafts, basketball, fishing, hiking, mini-golf, a petting zoo, soccer, swimming, tennis, and much more, all led by caring and professional staff. The fee is per two-week session.

$395 Registration Fee per Two-Week Session

Two-week sessions starting June 28, 2021!
Session One: June 28 – July 9 (closed July 5)
Session Two: July 12 – July 23
Session Three: July 26 – August 6
Session Four: August 9  – August 20

We are following the most up to date COVID-19 regulations from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health for the 2021 Camp season and will continue to update these based on new guidelines as they are released.

Please view our updated COVID-19 Guiding Principles as of 5/26/2021 here.

Our goal is to keep campers and staff happy, healthy, and safe throughout the summer. Some of our updated procedures include: stable pods, requiring face coverings when indoors, frequent hand washing, increased sanitation, and much more. Additionally, we have limited our capacity and will only be accepting 450 campers per session. Registration is by a first-come, first-serve basis. Please note your spot will not be guaranteed until all paperwork has been received.

All New This Summer!

This summer, campers can expect the same adventure, fun, play, and learning incorporated into their session. ALL campers, regardless of age, will be assigned to a stable pod for the duration of their session. Campers who are nine and older will have a choice of which “District” to register for. Each District has a core set of activities that their pod will rotate through daily with their staff member. Within each District, campers will be grouped by age. Please see page 2 of the Camp Ramsbottom Brochure to explore our many Districts!
