This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.
Welcome to Summer Camp 2020! Summer is about getting outside, seeing old friends and making new ones, as well as playing and exploring nature. We know things are different this summer, but we want to assure you that we are working hard to provide the same high quality of programming you know, love and have come to expect from the Amherst Rec Department.
Our reconfigured camp program will still provide all the fun arts and crafts, games, water based-activities, and outdoor experiences that we're known for while emphasizing and maintaining safety for all. We will be offering two options and locations this year. One at Peabody Mill Environmental Center, and the other at our newly purchased Buckmeadow location.
Please see the Parent Manual and Safety Procedure documents below for detailed information.
Buckmeadow Daily Camp Activities:
Your camper can expect a day full of water games, sports, slip-n-slides, arts & crafts, and many of their favorite Baboosic Lake Summer Camp Counselors!
PMEC Daily Camp Activities:
Your camper can expect a day full of hiking, arts & crafts, playing in the stream, outdoor games, and the amazing Outdoor Discovery counselors!
