Specialty Camps at Emerson Community Center Register View Cart

Join us for our specialty camps at Emerson Community Center the week of August 19 - 23 and August 26 - 30.  

Each specialty camp offering runs Monday through Friday and is a half day program that runs for 3 hours each day.  Morning specialty camps run from 8:30 - 11:30 am.  Afternoon specialty camps run from 12:30 - 3:30 pm.  Children signed up for both a morning and an afternoon specialty camp can bring a lunch and stay with camp staff in between the two programs to make a full day camp from 8:30 - 3:30. 

We will offer an Add Extended Day option from 3:30 - 5:30 pm for families that need it.  Campers must be registered for an afternoon specialty program in order to add the extended day.  Campers staying for extended day will participate in playground, gym, arts & crafts, inside games and other general camp activities.


Check out the Camp Calendar or the Newton Parks and Recreation Specialty camp website in the Links section for more information about each of our specialty offerings.

Our badminton camp offers 2 sessions.  Campers may sign up for one or both sessions.  Those doing both sessions will build on their skills from the first session.

Campers going into 7th and 8th grade can sign themselves in and out of camp with parent permission.  All other children must be signed in and out by an adult.
