Planning for Summer Camp is a year-long task- and the 2023 Guide to Summer Camps in Rhode Island and beyond is here to help!

Adventure Base Camp

Experience the thrill of the outdoors while introducing your child to independence without being too far from home. Adventure Base Camp is a 100% outdoor Day Camp with three locations at Camp Champlin in Cranston, RI, Camp Yawgoog in Hopkinton, RI, and Camp Norse in Kingston, MA.

The week-long program fills each day with adventures like archery, BMX, boating, swimming, crafts, wilderness survival, outdoor cooking, fire-building, nature appreciation, and daily STEM projects. This year’s theme is Adventure Is Out There. Each week will offer a different theme to keep the excitement going all summer. Enroll for more than one week and receive a huge discount.

Adventure Day Camp offers extended hours for families whose schedules do not fit the 9am-4pm time period. For all children ages 6-10.

Scholarships are available for Adventure Card holders.

Summer at Gordon

Since 1910, Gordon’s progressive academic program has put children, and their voices, at the center of learning. This summer, we once again look beyond the school year to expand our mission-driven, child-centered programming. The result is a diverse offering of camps that are playful, thoughtful, creative, and fun. Our nurturing and compassionate staff (including Gordon faculty) are ready to engage your child, encouraging them to venture safely outside their comfort zone, as they create new memories, forge friendships and explore!

Conveniently located just off of Route 195 in East Providence, Gordon’s scenic twelve-acre campus features over 70% open space and is filled with inspiring, age-appropriate, and flexible spaces both indoors and out. All programs include outdoor time (weather permitting) each day. Water play will also be included as a weekly activity.

Summer at Gordon will run for nine one-week sessions from June 26th to August 25th. Choose from half-day and full-day options, and a large variety of specialty camps including athletics, art, Spanish, engineering and more. The summer concludes with an exciting week off-campus at Aldersgate. There is a 10% discount for siblings.
