Children enjoy spending their days exploring our two natural playscapes, discovering science and nature, participating in music, art, and yoga, and engaging in water play and outdoor activities. In addition, a wide variety of in-house field trips are part of the summer program experience, including visits from places such as The Museum of Science, Barn Babies, and the New England Aquarium. Utilizing the school’s outdoor natural playscapes, the program integrates exciting opportunities for young children in the city to engage with nature-based activities.

Summer Fun Program

The Boston Children’s School Summer Fun Program celebrates it’s 37th year of providing exceptional summertime experiences and academic enrichment to children between the ages of 3 and 10 years old.  The Summer Fun Program at The Boston Children’s School is conveniently located at Charles River Park, in the historic West End section of Boston. The location is fully air-conditioned. The school has its own private playground, which allows children to play outdoors away from the noise, congestion and traffic of the city streets. The location also allows children to explore the cultural richness of the City of Boston through field trips to museums, theaters, libraries and historic sites. The Summer Fun program is organized by age. Each age group is supervised, taught and nurtured by certified teachers, along with teacher interns from local area colleges. All activities are designed to be developmentally appropriate for each age group. Children can use the pool areas, on a daily basis, at The Clubs at Charles River Park. The Summer Fun program also offers children music appreciation, gymnastics, field trips, arts and crafts, tennis, and interactive storytelling. Parent involvement and participation are always a part of the program, which begins June 22 and ends Aug. 21.

If you would like your child to become part of the 2020 Summer Fun Program at the Boston Children’s School, call Judy Langer, Program Director, at 617-367-6239.

Boston Explorers

-An Urban Camp

for Kids

617 – 839-2029

Boston Explorers combines the best of summer camp —creative, spontaneous play and hands-on activities —with the sights and sounds of the city.

Children, ages 7-15, are on the move every day in each of our two-week programs, exploring Boston from multiple perspectives —on tops of buildings, at sea level, and offshore on the Harbor Islands.  We walk and take public transportation everywhere. With one counselor for every six kids, campers get personal attention and are carefully supervised.

We offer a wide-ranging, interage experience that includes citywide explorations and adventure, hands-on learning, child-driven free play and exercise. We spend time outside every day, exploring Boston’s natural environs through day-long and overnight adventures.  We model a broader literacy — of geography and nature; of neighborhoods, history and culture – and provide opportunities for campers to fuel their curiously, inspire one another and foster citizenship.

The city of Boston IS OUR CAMPGROUND.

Program tuition includes two snacks and lunch every day, ferry and admission tickets and all activity fees.  As a non-profit organization, Boston Explorers is committed to providing opportunity to all children.
