St. Albans Recreation Summer Day Camp ~ Great Camp! Great Registration Options!  Pick whatever days work for your family  minimum of 2 days per week- Day camp is designed with fun in mind! Counselors & Campers will enjoy lots of outdoor play, arts and crafts, learn about wellness, field trips, enjoy special guests and entertainment, participate in special theme days and spend each afternoon splashing away at the St. Albans City Pool! Each morning starts at Barlow St. Community Center located at 39 Barlow Street in St. Albans, and groups will rotate between activities before having lunch and heading to St. Albans City Pool for the afternoon. Lots of fun activities, projects, counselors, friends and healthy MOVEMENT!  Campers walk to the St. Albans City Pool for afternoon swim.

 

NO NEED TO PACK LUNCH! DAY CAMP IS PARTICIPATING IN THE NATIONAL SUMMER LUNCH PROGRAM. DELICIOUS "KID FRIENDLY' MEALS ARE PROVIDED FREE OF CHARGE TO CAMPERS WEEKS 1-8.  WEEK 9 & 10 CAMPERS NEED TO BRING THEIR OWN LUNCH, SNACKS & BEVERAGES. LUNCHES ARE PREPARED BY THE ABBEY GROUP. If a camper prefers to pack lunch, that's fine, but lunch is provided. Campers still need to pack water/beverages and snacks.

Bring/wear sneakers, swim suit, towel & sunscreen. Please mark all items with your child's name!

If your camper will be registering for Swim Lessons this summer, please choose the latest lesson option available.  Campers will be brought to swim lessons, have lunch there and meet up with the rest of camp when they arrive for the afternoon.   The Recreation Department is happy to transport your child from Swim Team to Day Camp and to any other St. Albans Recreation Department Camp or Swim Lesson throughout the summer. Just  remind the staff each morning at drop off if your child has swim lessons or swim team practice.

**Note:  Schedule is tentative, trips and activities are subject to change due to many factors including weather and transportation.  We take a look at the week and make the best use of the conditions :) **

If you simply need to transfer to another week (and there is still room in that week) there is no transfer fee.

Payments are deducted on a weekly basis once camp starts until all weeks are paid for. The system is front loaded, so if you register for weeks 1, 2, 5 & 6, payments will be deducted weeks 1, 2, 3, & 4. Weeks 5 & 6 will be paid for in advance. Questions?
