Our camp coun­selors are Highly Qual­i­fied Teach­ers that are com­mit­ted to the camp’s phi­los­o­phy to offer an enriched and excit­ing pro­gram that encour­ages our campers to engage in new phys­i­cal and cre­ative activ­i­ties and to develop mean­ing­ful friendships.If the objec­tive for your child is to have a fun relax­ing sum­mer, to meet new friends, and to have new expe­ri­ences then Camp Squankum is the place for you.Click on the links below to see many of the dif­fer­ent adven­tures that our campers expe­ri­enced last year.Come and find out why our kids can­not wait for the sum­mer to begin.We invite you to learn about our camp by attend­ing one of our Open Houses.Sincerely,Jim Bon­derDirec­tor, Parks and Recre­ation To Reg­is­ter for Camp Squankum , click here

Camp Squankum CIT Program
The CIT Pro­gram is an option for our upper lever campers. CITs spend half the day as a camper and the other half of the day with CIT duties which can include help­ing coun­selors to clean up after lunch, help­ing to set up activ­i­ties, help­ing to serve pizza, pret­zels, and water bot­tles, assist­ing younger campers by putting on their swim bands, etc…We do plan spe­cial events for the CITs that are sep­a­rate from our whole camp trips and activ­i­ties. Our CITs are also per­mit­ted to go to the Lake at Hos­pi­tal­ity Creek with parental per­mis­sion and under the super­vi­sion of their coun­selors. CITs are given a 35% dis­count off the stan­dard week cost of camp.

To be eli­gi­ble for our CIT Pro­gram, a camper must be enter­ing either 8th or 9th grade in the Fall, attend a min­i­mum of four weeks of camp, and com­plete the CIT Appli­ca­tion. Please keep in mind that there is a selec­tion process, and being in the cor­rect grade level does not guar­an­tee accep­tance into the pro­gram. Click below to apply for the CIT Program.
