Summer Camp Guide for East Greenwich
Enrollment is starting soon for many summer camps. Here's a selection of summer camps in Rhode Island.
With the choice and variety of summer camps available in New England in 2013, boredom won't be an option.
Organizations from the YMCA to local parks and recreation departments offer dozens of camp choices for recreation, science, reading, sports, music and more – although EG Parks & Rec's choices won't be released until April. Whether you're looking for an all-around experience or a more focused camp, this list can easily launch your camp search with examples in East Greenwich and surrounding communities.
