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. Bus service to Camp Ramsbottom is provided from convenient locations in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, with camper pick-up each morning and drop-off each afternoon. The fee is per two-week session. Extended care hours at both the Club’s Elson Clubhouse in Pawtucket and Camp Ramsbottom in Rehoboth are available for an additional fee.

During this time of uncertainty amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot thank you enough for your loyalty, commitment, and patience as we confront and adjust to the new challenges of today. After exploring many options of how we could provide a quality, fun, and safe camp experience for our campers, program aides, and staff this summer, it is with a very heavy heart that we sadly must inform you that the Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket’s Camp Ramsbottom will not open for the summer of 2020.

Pre-Teen Summer Programs

For youth ages 6-12, we provide an engaging summer program. With activities running throughout the day, we will focus on three main areas, learning through play, service learning, and social-emotional wellness.  All participants will be provided with a nutritious morning snack and lunch meals daily, fun activities, and interaction with professional and caring staff. Programs and activities range from educational to artistic to community service focused to recreational.

Due to the seriousness of this virus, we are requiring all families to keep their children home if they are not 100% healthy. Your child will not be allowed to enter the Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket if they are showing any sign of illness, including but not limited to: fever, coughing, sneezing, wheezing, or any other undiagnosed respiratory illness. Prior to entering the Club, each child will have to complete a Wellness Check with staff.

$200 Registration Fee per Week

All registrations for each summer week will need to be completed by June 26, 2020 at 12pm.

You must pay the first registered week in full and a deposit will need to be put down for each additional week to reserve their spot for the summer. You must use our online portal here to pay your remaining balance of $125.00 on the Thursday before your child is registered to attend. Balances failed to be made in time will result in a delay of your child’s start date.

For your convenience we have created two separate registration forms; one for our families registering with a DHS certificate number, and the second for our Private Pay families.  Please note only one member can be registered per form.
