Summer Camp

The Town of Greenfield’s summer day camp is a huge sold out hit every year with its 5-week, morning format and a full array of traditional activities.

Location Change

We cannot use our regular Greenfield Elementary this summer due to construction. Campers spend 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. this year at Maple Ave. Middle School.

What It’s Like

Campers spend 8:30 a.m.- 12:30 p.m. at the charming Greenfield Elementary School, at 3180 Route 9N, that sits in a rural setting just a few miles from Saratoga Springs in the foothills of the Adirondacks. Activities include rotating stations of fun, featuring such things as obstacle courses, hiking, gardening, Taekwondo, arts and crafts, as well as many organized games and sports like soccer, flag football, kickball and more. Campers participate in themed days like “Super Hero” or “Hat Day” and painting, tie-dying and rock climbing. They receive weekly visits from Uncharted Wild LLC to encounter live wild animals, regularly scheduled “Water Days” for splashing around and even the chance to pal around with some local llamas. Rainy day activities bring the children inside to the school’s gymnasium and cafeteria. Fridays often end each week on a sweet note with ice cream treats.

More Details

Students ages 5 to 14 are welcome and will be supervised with a 2:10 counselor/camper ratio. The camp features 30 trained camp counselors, most of whom once attended this camp themselves. Parents can choose early drop off for an additional cost and all students are eligible for the town’s Free Lunch Program, daily on-site after camp. Signups open in March to Town of Greenfield residents, and in April open to the public.

Signups start in January. This camp sells out every year, so sign up early.

Summer Employment and Volunteer Opportunities

The Town of Greenfield employs 30 counselors each summer and has a few spots for “counselors-in-training,” age 15 and up. Leadership opportunities exist for the senior most counselors.

If you are interested, email rsewell@greenfieldny.org to learn next steps.

We can always use volunteers at its many programs and events. If you are a high schooler looking for community service hours or an adult who would like to get involved with the community, contact rsewell@greenfieldny.org to see how you can help.
