2020 Summer Camp
Update June 8, 2020:
After careful consideration and full review of Massachusetts’ new Minimum Requirements for Health and Safety for Child and Youth Serving Programs which was released on June 1, 2020, James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn has decided not to open our traditional summer camp program in 2020.
The safety of our youth, their families and our staff were at the center of this decision, as it is our priority in everything we do at the Club. Health and safety will continue to be our priority as we move forward through this “new normal.”
We understand this is incredibly difficult for our families who have come to rely on our programs for childcare and enrichment. We know that kids need socialization and the support that our camp offers, but it has become obvious that the new guidelines would not allow us to provide the experience that our community has come to expect.
For those of you who have paid deposits for summer camp, you will receive an e-mail today laying out refund, rollover, or gifting options.
We are carefully looking at ways we might be able to welcome very small groups of children and teenagers into the Club soon, but the capacity and hours will be extremely limited.
All of us at the Club cannot wait until we can all be together again, and we wish you well during these difficult times. Thank you for your understanding.
Julie Gage, Executive Director
If you are returning to work outside of the home or are an essential worker, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has emergency child care centers open that have the capacity for your family.

About Our Camp
Licensed by the Department of Public Health, the Club’s summer camp program is a traditional day camp that also offers an abundance of high yield learning activities aimed at curbing summer learning loss. We aim to build campers’ self confidence while they develop respect for each other and the world around them.

Something New & Exciting Every Day
The day begins at 9:00 a.m. with an all-camp meeting and ends with group time at 5:30 p.m. In between there is swimming, sports, arts, science experiments and so much more. For a fee of $25.00 per week, early morning care is also available from 7:30 a.m. until 9:00 a.m. for those families that need it.
