"My youngest just said that she can’t wait for summer so that camp will start and she can ‘have fun every day!"
—Long Time Summer Camp Parent

For campers entering Kindergarten through 6th grade 

Since 1924, the Dedham Community House Summer Camp has helped create lifelong childhood memories of summers filled with fun in the sun! We strive to provide a safe, inclusive, comfortable, fun, enriching, and reliable child care environment that promotes the physical, social, and intellectual well-being of the school-aged child. Through a variety of activities, your child will have the opportunity to make new friends, try new things, and to just be a kid!

We are committed to building a welcoming and inclusive environment for all. We seek to honor and value diversity in our community and program, drawing from activities and materials that represent the diversity of our camp, community, and world. In our pursuit of excellence, we are continually learning, evaluating, and adapting our practices. We welcome input from our families and staff.
