Comments from parents in past Summers:

"I love the program, staff is caring and responsible"

"We just moved to Northampton and my 6yr old was nervous not knowing anyone. It was a wonderful experience. She loved the counselors and had lots of fun. Thank you!"


Our staff consists of mature counselors who have demonstrated their genuine interest in and compassion for children. All Recreation Leaders & Junior Leaders are screened and carefully chosen to be positive role models. They are trained and certified in first aid and CPR. Participants are placed into smaller groups based on age, and we maintain a safe staff to participant ratio.
