update as of 5/28/2020: We regret to inform you that we will not be holding summer camp this year.   

Hopkinton Rec Summer Camp is designed for:
Campers Age 6 years (or have completed Kindergarten)-11 years 
CIT (Counselor-In-Training) Campers Age 12-15


Registrations and payment MUST be done in advance by close of business (4:30pm) the Thursday before the week your child is to attend. 

Fees are set on a pay-per-week basis.  There are no discounts or reduced rates for campers who attend less days. 

Transferring Fees:
Weekly fees paid may be transferred if there is a need to switch weeks.  Please contact the Recreation Dept. by phone or email immediately if this need arises.  This MUST be done before the camper attends the needed week.  

Medical Records:
Copy of Camper and CIT (Counselor-in-Training) Immunization Records and most recent Physical must be submitted before your child can attend camp.  Please drop off at the Town Hall or Slusser Center (Rec. Office) or mail to: Recreation Dept., 330 Main Street, Hopkinton, NH  03229.  Please note that in most cases, this takes time to obtain.  Please DO NOT wait until the last minute!

What Should Kids Bring To Camp?
1.  Please remember to pack a lunch, 2 snacks, and drinks/water for your camper every day.  Please use a cooler with ice packs as there is no refrigerator available. 

2.  Please pack a bathing suit and towel for your camper every day.  (There are planned and un-planned beach visits as well as games/activities that involve getting wet!).  Also, the camp staff cannot apply sunscreen to campers.  This should be done in advance at home and sending them with protective spray is advised.  Also, hats and swimming shirts are a fantastic idea!

3.  Please pack sun screen & bug spray to be used as needed by your camper throughout the week.

4.  Campers must wear (or bring) sneakers to camp each day.

**note** please leave all electronics at home.  Our counselors will provide the entertainment!
