Summer Programs

SUMMER 2021

Since 2004, Westborough Community Education has offered summer programs for the community, including the Summer Day Camp, Teen Leadership Program, and Summer Enrichment Programs. These programs keep campers engaged all day long through recreational, physical, and creative activities. Each summer day, our campers and staff will play, laugh, learn, and create lasting camp memories. 

While summer 2020 was definitely an interesting one to navigate - wearing masks, keeping six feet of social distance, and reinventing our classic camp activities - we were able to operate a fun, safe, and successful summer camp experience for our campers and families. We are planning summer 2021, keeping in mind those same policies and guidelines in order to have another fun and safe summer. We can't wait for summer to begin!

TEEN LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS

CIT PROGRAM
Grades: Entering 7th through 10th

The Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Program is the first step in the Teen leadership Program and is designed to give hands-on training to teens who are looking to be future summer camp counselors. CIT's will participate in activities designed to develop their leadership skills including teambuilding challenges, camp basics workshops, group assignments, all camp activities, assisting activity specialists, and more. Teens in this program will experience life as a summer camp counselor and develop skills in problem-solving, communications, positive role-modeling, and more. Completion of the CIT program does not guarantee future employment. The CIT program is broken up into two, one-week sections, A and B. Both sections must be completed before being awarded a certificate. Sections can be taken in any order. Those individuals who have completed both sections A and B of the CIT program may register for the Jr. Staff program. There is no CIT Program Week 2.


JR. STAFF PROGRAM
Grades: Entering 7th to 10th Grade

Designed to be the next step in the Teen Leadership Program, the Jr. Staff Program enhances the hands-on training for teens who are looking to be future camp counselors. Jr. Staff will spend the majority of their day assigned to one camp group, with the purpose of supporting our summer camp staff. Jr. Staff will also be involved in mentoring CITs, planning and running group activities, and more. Jr. Staff will be subject to evaluations during the camp season in order to gain valuable feedback and guidance to grow their leadership skills. Participants must be entering 7th though 10th grade, have completed the CIT Program, and be recommended for the program by the Teen Leadership Coordinator. Completion of the Gr. Staff Program does not guarantee future employment. Jr. Staff registrants may sign-up for any amount of weeks, regardless of section.

SUMMER ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS

The goal of the Summer Enrichment Programs is to offer a variety of classes which speak to the range of interests of our students. Our class sizes are kept small to ensure quality instruction in a safe and interactive manner. We work with instructors who are experts in the field and offer engaging programming to our school-age community members. 

Enrichment programs feature weekly classes in a variety of topics, including STEM, creative arts, nature, chess, sports and more!
