Parks and Rec programs

Concord and many of the surrounding towns each offer a variety of summer day camp programs for children. Offerings are generally for a range of ages and may include sports, arts and STEM-specific options as well as camps with a more diverse itinerary packed into a week. Municipalities generally try to keep camps affordable and may offer scholarships for some programs.

This year, Concord Parks and Rec is offering more than a dozen camps. There are several tiers for soccer camps, a flag football program, video camp, nature camp, street hockey, stay and play camp, adventure camp, dance camp, a musical theatre camp, circuit lab camps, basketball camp, field hockey camp, learn-to-row camp, and tennis camp. Learn more about Concord’s programs at concordnh.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=3565.

In Hopkinton, programs include British Soccer Camp, Girls Lacross Clinic, Junior Explorers, Tiny Explorers, Summer Art Camp and Rec Summer Camp. Learn more at hopkintonnh.myrec.com.
