Summer Camps

There’s nothing worse than finding the perfect summer camp, only to realize the dates, times, or ages don’t fit your needs!

Our goal: to help you find summer camps near Norwood & Westwood that work for your family. 

We are working on updating this list for 2018! Camps that have not been updated for this summer are marked “[2017]“. Any camp without that date has already been updated for the summer of 2018.
