South Portland Summer Rec Camp 2021

It’s that time of the year again. We are excited to inform you that we are working diligently to develop our summer programs for 2021. 

The summer of 2020 brought a lot of challenges to our community as many camps were impacted by the global pandemic. Fortunately, we were able to create and provide one of the few recreational summer camps in our area with the help and guidance of our health and safety officials.
See our Summer Camp Fun Video for 2020.

We have many exciting things planned for this summer! We will continue to follow state guidelines and develop COVID-19 prevention protocols, so as we get closer to the summer the information on this page is subject to change. 

Our Summer Camp program provides a safe and welcoming community that challenges and nurtures fun, individual and community-based growth, activities that help children discover their individual skills and abilities, and many opportunities for our campers to establish strong connections with their community. Each of our Summer Camps is crafted with all the necessary tools for your children to experience an unforgettable summer.

We love creating well-rounded programs where our campers have the opportunity to explore different skills through ART, SPORTS, COMMUNITY OUTINGS, OUTDOOR PLAY, and SPECIAL EVENTS.
