Moses Brown Summer Camps

Moses Brown has offered rewarding and exciting camp programs for more than 50 years, but each year is a chance to create new memories with different offerings and new friends!  Located in the center of Providence, Moses Brown’s 33-acre campus is a lush and green oasis. Children enjoy the use of all facilities, including the state-of-the-art artificial turf field, soccer field, softball diamond, woodshop, ceramic studio, computer labs, Y-lab, and performance halls. Register for Moses Brown Summer Camp here.


Next Stop BROADWAY® transports theatre-loving youth ages 10-17 to the “Golden Age of Broadway!” Cast members tap their creativity, hone their skills, and cultivate their passions in the collaborative context of the ensemble. This five-day, rigorous immersion culminates in an “Opening Night” performance on PPAC’s historic stage! Next Stop is a full day program (9 AM to 5 PM) with lunch and all supplies included. Financial Aid is available. Designed both for those with and without theatre experience! Dates: July 15-19 and July 22-26, 2024. New for 2024! “NEXT!” is PPAC’s new audition preparation course (August 5-9).

Summer at Gordon

Since 1910, Gordon’s progressive academic program has put children, and their voices, at the center of learning. For nine weeks 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 for children from age three to rising eighth grade. Our nurturing and compassionate staff (including Gordon faculty and alumni) are ready to engage your child, encouraging them to venture safely outside their comfort zone, as they create new memories, forge friendships and explore Gordon’s twelve-acre campus.

Community Boating

One-week, sailing/paddling EcoAdventure summer camps offer long-distance picnic cruises, fun on-the-water games and hands-on environmental lessons. Two-week Sailing Camps use kid-sized boats, fun games, and lots of encouragement in hands-on sailing. After-school, adult classes, sailing parties, facility rentals also available. Age/Restrictions: Age 8-16, no previous experience required. Dates: All sessions June 17 – Aug 16. All camps Monday – Friday, 8:30am – 3:30pm. Cost: $365/ 1-week, $775 2-weeks.

Steve & Kates Camp

Since 1980, Steve & Kate’s has put kids in charge of their own learning experience. Kids choose from a variety of activities in real-time, including sewing, coding, maker crafts, baking, sports, and more! As kids try, fail, and learn on their own, they learn to trust their own judgment, and tackle the challenges of the world with creativity and confidence. Families can buy any number of days, to use at any time–no weekly reservations required. Or, buy a Summer Pass, which covers the whole season. Either way, any unused Passes are automatically refunded at summer’s end. Ages: 5–12 | Lunch, snacks & all hours (8am–6pm) included.
