The Great Outdoors
Get in touch with your natural side as we use the world around us for activities and fun. Activities include building “fairy houses”, making a “shelter” with sticks and twigs, painting with a variety of natural materials, and using our senses to discover nature!
Attendance / Dismissals
Each day, your child should be dropped off with the Camp Counselors at the Pavilion by the tennis courts. In the case of inclement weather, we will send out an email for campers to be dropped off at Blackbird Hall.
The drop-off window is 9:00-9:10 AM. In the event that your child is unable to attend a scheduled camp day, please let us know: (978) 448-3996 x10 by 9:00AM. Daily attendance is taken. In the event that a child is not present and we have not received notification, we will place a call to confirm the child’s absence.
Pick-up time is 4:00 PM. Children are released only into the custody of the parent(s)/caretaker(s) listed on the Camp Medical Form. There is a late charge ($12) for any child not picked up at 4PM unless you have purchased After Care in advance. If there is an emergency and parents cannot make pick up by 5PM, please call the main office 978-448-3996 or 978-855-9691 to make other arrangements.

Summer Camp Regulations
The Summer Camp at Groton Country Club is licensed by the Groton Board of Health and complies with all regulations of the MA Department of Public Health.
All camp attendees must have up-to-date immunization and medical history forms on file prior the start of Summer Camp. This form is the standard form issued by pediatrician's offices upon annual exam. You are welcome to send these in as soon as you register for one camp session. Only one form per child is needed for the entire summer.
What to Bring and What Not to Bring
Each day, your camper should bring a towel, swimsuit, change of clothes, sunscreen, sneakers, water bottle and a hat as children are outdoors most of the day. Please label all items with child's name.
Please note- Electronic devices are not allowed at camp. Campers will participate in activities that stimulate the mind and body. Electronic devices may distract and hinder campers from getting the maximum amount of fun at the Groton Country Club. Counselors-in-Training (CITs) will not have electronic devices at camp. All counselors will have phones with them at all times throughout the day for emergencies.
Children are grouped into the following age groups:
Group A : Completed grades K - 2
Group B : Completed grades 3 & 4
Group C : Completed grades 5 - 7
CIT Program: Entering grades 8 & 9
Lunches & Snacks
Healthy snacks and lunches are included in the tuition.
While subject to change, our usual menu of lunches each week is as follows:
Monday: Deli sandwiches served with chips and a side of fruit.
Tuesday: Taco Tuesday! Tacos are served with a side of fruit.
Wednesday: Pasta with meatballs served with bread and a side of fruit.
Thursday: Pizza with chips and a side of fruit.

*On the main Summer Camp page, there is a Summer Camp Registration Form. Please use this form to notify Groton Country Club Summer Camp and our counselors if your child has any food allergies so we can try to make alternative arrangements with the cook. If your child does not like the food options offered or if we cannot offer an allergy-safe option, you are welcome to send an alternative packed lunch from home.
