MIT Summer Day Camp

Welcome

(Summer 2015 Camp Registration will open in late-January)

Since 1960, MIT Summer Day Camp has strived to offer an inclusive environment where all children are encouraged to participate and learn new skills. Our programs are designed to ensure each camper a safe and enjoyable experience. We hire only highly qualified individuals with tremendous experience working with children and knowledge in a broad spectrum of recreational activities. MIT Summer Day Camp is a member of the Massachusetts Camp Association.

Valuing Diversity
MIT Summer Day Camp embraces the numerous cultural and personal differences of campers and their families. Our staff actively promotes respect and appreciation for diversity of our campers' races, ethnicities, cultures, family structures, and other personal characteristics.

Objectives for Developing Life Skills
MIT Summer Day Camp is committed to the development of campers' life skills through group activities and exposure to diverse athletic and educational experiences. Our emphasis on safety promotes an atmosphere of respect and trust that encourages children to enhance additional personal and situational skills through new challenges, while having fun. A qualified staff, wide range of events, and a state-of-the-art athletic and recreational environment enrich the camp experience and provide the necessary developmental structure for children of all ages.
