WHITINSVILLE – The Whitin Community Center is excited to announce our Camp Whitin summer camps, to be held weekly from June – August! For almost 30 years Camp Whitin has taken pride in providing fun, youth-oriented summer camps for children between the ages of 4-15 throughout the Blackstone Valley.
Whether it is an activity, educational or sport camp, half-day or full-day, every camper will enjoy an experience full of fun, fitness, and friendships! We believe Camp Whitin distinguishes itself from other area camps in the quality of programming, experienced, qualified and energetic counselors, current and former teachers volunteering as camp coordinators, and the wide variety of choices we offer. You will find classic favorites like 5-D Dodgeball, Design, Build & Destroy, Splash ‘n Dash, and Step Up Dance & Cheer. We are excited to offer NEW camps as well, like this summer’s Science Magic, a Half-Day program for our Mini Campers who will become mad scientists making slime, gloops and bubbling globs! Also new this Summer is Destination Aviation, where campers will learn all about aerodynamics, construct their own kites, and fly drones from our resident expert Mark Widner and special guests Cora Gauthier of the Civil Air Patrol, as well as Glen Davison of Kiting USA. For those interested in more physical activity, another new and exciting camp this Summer is Camp Whitin Cadets, where campers will do obstacle courses, capture the flag, relay races, water balloon fights, visit with members of the Army National Guard and much more! Also new this year is our Counselors in Training (CIT) for 14-15 years old campers who are interested in becoming a Camp Whitin counselor. CIT participants will become First Aid & CPR certified, learn the ins and outs of the WCC and Camp Whitin, choose one week throughout the Summer to be a Camp Counselor and bring the fun and enthusiastic spirit to our campers!
Throughout the summer children will also participate in activities with our community partners; Northbridge Fire Department, Northbridge Police Department, Army National Guard, Whitinsville Christian School, Whitinsville Social Library, Joel Warren of Character J, Animal Adventures and many more. Campers will also have the opportunity to swim in our pool daily, have outdoor fun in our park, enjoy free pizza on Fridays, and fly down a gigantic 75’ waterslide on our hill in Whitin Park!
Come join us for a Summer of fun, fitness, and friendships!
