Camp Rec Summer Camp

Camp Rec Summer Camp

Camp Rec at Southeastern's Pennington Center is a unique day camp offering a fun, safe atmosphere for kids to play and learn. Our daily program features sports, games, fitness activities, nutrition, crafts, swimming, weekly field trips and camp performances all designed so kids will have a blast all summer!

Our counselors are all college students, certified in First Aid and CPR/AED, and led by our Assistant Director of Field Experience and Youth Programs Kathy Cusimano. Camp Rec facilitators and counselors work to create a setting of exploration and discovery, where children build self-esteem and self-confidence and learn about teamwork and friendship.

Camp Rec serves children ages 5-12 in 11 weekly sessions this summer. 4-year-old campers are welcome to join older sibling campers. We also offer a limited number of Junior Counselor spots for ages 13-16.

Off campus field trips are held every Wednesday to exciting venues. We keep your child active with structured recreational activities! Culinary and robotics activities are offered every week, as well as indoor swimming on Southeastern's campus. Swimming lessons are available as an add-on program!

Camp hours are 9 am-4 pm daily and before care (7-9 am) and after care (4-5:45pm) options are available. The cost is $145/week, which includes breakfast, lunch, snack and field trips.

New this year! We are offering "a la carte days" for parents who only need their children to attend 2-3 days a week. The cost is $65/2 days and $100/3 days. Field trips are an additional $15. For more details on flexible scheduling options, including half days, contact Camp Rec.
