Have a summer that is OUT OF THIS WORLD!

The Boys & Girls Club of East Providence has been putting fun summer memories back in children’s lives since 1954. Our summer camp, Camp Crosby, is located on the shores of the Mount Hope Bay in Bristol, and features a pool, nature trails, and — more importantly — fun learning activities that help to stop summer learning loss. For many young teens, camp also provides their first summer job experience, with many counselors-in-training employed each summer. We even offer free lunch daily. With more than sixty summers of experience, Camp Crosby knows how to provide safe and fun summers for the kids who need it the most.

What are the ages for Camp Crosby?
Camp Crosby is for children 6 – 13.  Campers will be placed in groups by age.

What if my child misses the bus?
Buses will depart promptly 8:30am.  If your child misses the bus, you will be responsible for transporting your child to Camp Crosby. No child can be left at the Boys and Girls Club after buses leave.

Do I have to sign my child up for the entire summer?
No.  We know that flexibility is important to our families! You can sign your child up for just the two week sessions you want them to attend.

What if I only want to send my child for a few days a week?
You may send your child as many days during the week as you choose, however, the fees are weekly fees. No discount is given if a child does not show up for any day during the week.

What if I register for a week but my child does not attend camp?
If you would like to cancel a session’s registration you must do so in writing at the main office by 5pm on Tuesday prior to the week the session begins.  The only exception to this policy is in the event of a medical condition that requires the child to not be at camp for an entire session.  A note from a doctor clearly stating the dates that the child must be absent from camp must be provided in order to receive a refund. Please note that if your child attends at least one day during the session, no refund will be made for that week regardless of medical condition or a doctor’s note.

Does the staff put sunblock on for my child?
We are unable to assist children with sunscreen.  Sunscreen should be applied prior to your child arriving at camp.

Do you accept Child Care Assistance from the State of Rhode Island Department of Human Services (DHS)?
Yes! You must provide a valid certificate number from DHS at the time of registration. For more information, please see our Parent Handbook or contact Amanda Wheeler at [email protected].
