The 2021 Summer Camp Application Period is Closed.

Programs That Make The Difference

Summer 2021 will be
a Summer to Remember!

Let the children play! Starting June 28, the Boys & Girls Club of New Haven will run an engaging eight-week, full-day summer camp to kids from nearly every New Haven neighborhood—at no cost to their families.

Campers will spend their summer participating in athletics, arts & crafts, project-based summer learning, games and tournaments, and special programs from an amazing line-up of community partners. And on Fun Fridays they’ll enjoy popular theme days like Carnival Day, Music and Dance Party, Field Games, and “Beach Day”—including sprinklers and an ice cream truck.

**All camp spots for Summer 2021 have been filled. 190 applications were received for 97 spots.**

When the School Day Ends
