summer camps in Rhode Island

Planning for Summer Camp is a year-long task- and the 2022 Guide to Summer Camps in Rhode Island and beyond is here to help!  After 2+ years of the pandemic, 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 are filled hope that Summer 2022 will look more like summers past. As with the past few years, we encourage you review the camps guidelines in relation to COVID-19 precautions before you write that check and pack their bags!

Summer at Gordon

Since 1910, Gordon’s progressive academic program has put children, and their voices, at the center of learning. This summer, we once again look beyond the school year to expand our mission-driven, child-centered programming. The result is a diverse offering of camps that are playful, thoughtful, creative, and fun. Our nurturing and compassionate staff (including Gordon faculty) are ready to engage your child, encouraging them to venture safely outside their comfort zone, as they create new memories, forge friendships and explore!
