About BPRW Summer Camps

BPRW summer camps provide quality childcare for working families and caregivers, as well as help children develop skills, while staying active and safe during the summer months. Our department offers over 40 Burlington summer camps and clinics over 10 weeks, in locations across the City. Camps are available for children in Pre-K through 12th grade. Choose from camps in our five main program categories: Youth Sports, Movement, Learning, Outdoor Recreation and Ice Skating.

Specialty offerings include LEGO camp, skateboarding, pony camp, chess camp, STEM camps, soccer, tennis, and much more!

Full day, State-Licensed Childcare camps are also available — Champ camp and PAL camp — these camps accept childcare subsidies and include free lunch, snack, and field trips.
