St. Albans Recreation Day Camp provides a safe and fun day of camp for kids in Kindergarten through 8th Grade. Our camp provides a range of activities to entice everyone's interest in an atmosphere that reinforces the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Campers will enjoy a summer full of nature, water fun, games, field trips, sports, arts and crafts and friendships - old and new.
Great Registration Options! Pick whatever days work for your family with a minimum of 2 days per week.
No need to pack lunches! St. Albans Recreation Department participates in the Free Summer Lunch Program. If a camper prefers to pack lunch, that's fine, but lunch is provided.
Here's what a typical day looks like:
7:30am-8:30am drop off at Barlow Street Community Center
9:00am-9:30am Snack & Morning Meeting
9:30am-12:00noon - Group Activities
12:00 noon - Lunch
12:30pm Walk to Pool
1:00pm-3:30pm Splash the afternoon away at the St. Albans City Pool
3:30pm-4:30pm Pick up at the Playground - St. Albans City School
In most cases, field trips will occur on Fridays and we leave by bus from Barlow St. Community Center at 9:00am. Kids participating in Swim Team need to leave practice a bit early to be ready.
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 will transport your child from Swim Team to Day Camp or Swim Lessons throughout the summer. Just remind the staff each morning at drop off if your child has swim lessons or swim team practice.

Register for all weeks you want this summer and pay only for one week at the time of the registration. Keep in mind that once the weeks are registered for, that space is held for your child. If you need to cancel - there is a cancellation fee. If you simply need to transfer to another week (and there is still room in that week) there is no transfer fee. The first week must be paid for as a deposit.
You can register for whichever weeks you like and the payment will automatically be charged to your debit or credit card on the Sunday before the week you've registered for. 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. No deposit required.
