NOTL Summer Camp 

In conjunction with recent recovery announcements, and in recognition of the importance of summer programming for parents who are returning to work, the Town is pleased to announce the continuation of its summer day camp program. While camp will look and run quite different than previous years, Staff are excited to welcome campers back to a fun-filled summer camp schedule for children ages 6-12. Our camp strives to provide children with a safe and inclusive camp experience in which they can meet new friends and participate in a variety of activities, including cooperative games, sports, arts & crafts, science experiments, and outdoor adventures.
