summer camps in Rhode Island and beyond

Planning for Summer Camp is a year-long task- and the 2021 Guide to Summer Camps in Rhode Island and beyond is here to help!  After the year we’ve all had, I think we can all agree that the kids deserve some good old fashioned summer camp fun this year.  And us parents deserve some break time!

We’re all looking for a sense of normalcy these days, and filled hope that Summer 2021 will look more like summers past than 2020. As with last year, we are still in a somewhat fluid situation, with changes happening with little notice.  So before you write that check and pack their bags, be sure to review the camp’s guidelines to be sure that not only are they open, but that the COVID-19 related guidelines of the camp align with the precautions your family is taking.
