JUNE 21, 2018 – For many people, memories of youthful days at summer camp are very special.

Here are some of the best local day and overnight camps in New England.


Cedarland Summer Day Camp offers two exciting camps: Full Day for campers ages 4-12 and Junior Outing for campers ages 12-14.

    I fondly remember my two summers at Camp Young Judaea during the early ‘50’s. Reading this brought back some lovely memories. So glad to know the camp still exists.
