Summer Explorers Camp offers your camper entering Grades 2 - 6 an enriched and fun filled summer. Campers will spend time outdoors exploring and learning about nature, participating in group games, enjoy creating arts and crafts, and much more.  All games and activities are designed to promote social distancing while still enjoying all the fun. 

Campers will enjoy one week of session at Sunrise Park and the other week at McAlister/Middle School Campus. Camper will be assigned to groups by age. This summer, camp slots will be open to Suffield residents whose parents/caregivers are essential workers, called back to work, and our camps serve as their primary source of child care until June 22. After this deadline, we will open camps up to all Suffield families, if there are slots available.  
Summer Explorers Camp provides a safe and welcoming environment along with non-stop fun and unforgettable experiences. The Parks and Recreation Staff is committed to offering new experiences that encourage imagination, growth and adventure.  Don't miss out on all the fun!
