Summer Days Program

Welcome to the Grafton Recreation Summer Days Program!

Our day camp, for ages 4-13, is held on the grounds of the Millbury St. School in Grafton. The full day program and half day program give children the ability to participate in a variety of activities with their peers and under the supervision of our Recreation Staff. We will strive to maintain a staff to child ratio of 1:5 for children up to age 6 and a ratio of 1:10 for children ages 7 and up. Children are divided into groups of similar ages and will rotate through such activities as sports, arts and crafts, water activities and more.
 
New activities and items this year include theme weeks, archery (for ages 7-13), a gaga pit, a weekly visit from Crystal Entertainment for a 'wet n' wild' day (waterslides, misting station, etc), slammo and more!
 
Registration is going on now! Take advantage of the early registration fee of $140 per week per child for our Full Day Program and $65 per week per child for our Half Day Program until April 1!
