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. Each week has a theme which will be incorporated to daily activities plus archery, a gaga pit, a weekly visit from Crystal Entertainment with special games and so much more!
 
REGISTRATION OPENS ON FEBRUARY 17 WITH AN EARLY REGISTRATION DISCOUNT UNTIL APRIL 1!

Counselor-in-Training Program
  • Program Information: The C.I.T. program will help your 14 or 15 year old develop their leadership potential and give them an understanding of what is needed to be responsible for a group of children. Through day to day oversight by the same Program Leader and caring for the same group of children, they will gain self confidence, become aware of the environment around them, learn group management skills and become mentors to the kids in their group, all while still being able to experience the FUN of our summer youth program. *We are looking for teenagers who demonstrate leadership skills, are respectful, can follow rules and will be a positive role model for our campers
  • Registration Information: If your child is interested in being a CIT this summer please register them and choose up to 2 weeks they are available.

Reviews
"...This program is SO well organized. Mia and Jayden loved going this week and really enjoyed being with Maeve and Kayla....They seemed like a great fit and Kayla really just did fantastic with Jayden, he isn't usually too attached to teachers but by day 2 he was already giving Kayla hugs. Speaks volumes for her ability to get on his level, see when he is overwhelmed and redirect as needed.....Again I have to say the program as a whole has been great.  Little things like designated places for backpacks and individual check in, really makes things simpler on the parent end :) I like what you've done with the place!" - Jessie R.
