Summer camp registration open
NASHUA – Summer camp registration is now open for children entering kindergarten through grade six (ages five to 12) at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua. Camp will be held for nine weeks, beginning June 27 through Aug. 26, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua membership fee of $35 is required for participation.
The club’s fully licensed child-care program, called “Kids Club,” serves children who will be entering kindergarten through third grade. Each week features a different theme, from Space Creatures to Water Adventure Week, that offers daily activities, games, crafts, a “Movie of the Week,” and an off-site field trip.
Children entering grades four through six are invited to participate in the Club’s Camp Ohana-Nash, a state-licensed, on-site camp. Weekly themes include Super Heroes, Summer Olympics, and an Elements week (think Earth, Wind and Fire!) that features a trip to Water Country. Along with daily fitness, arts and crafts, games, and educational activities, campers learn gardening skills. A movie and field trip are included in the weekly schedule.
All summer camp participants enjoy daily open swim under the supervision of two certified lifeguards at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua’s indoor pool. Breakfast, lunch, and a snack are provided each day. Bus transportation to and from camp is available throughout Nashua.
“Our team recently reorganized our summer camp programming and hired additional staff to promote structured curriculums and programming, increased supervision and added safety measures. We also worked creatively to ensure every one of our campers will have a fun and educational experience in an inclusive, positive environment,” said Craig Fitzgerald, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua. “We are excited to kick-off the summer with kids in our community and encourage families to register as soon as possible – space is limited and filling fast.”
There is no minimum registration, so campers in both age groups can attend one week or a combination of them. The weekly fee for licensed child care through Kids Club is $200 and the fee for Camp Ohana-Nash is $125. The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua is committed to removing financial barriers and obstacles, so financial assistance is available to those who qualify. In addition, a 10% discount is offered to siblings attending the same camp week.
