Welcome to Explorers Day Camp 2023!
Explorers Day Camp is the perfect opportunity for youth to make new friends, participate in a variety of activities and create memories that last a lifetime! This summer camp includes a variety of outdoor activities at the park, weekly entertainer visits and daily swim time in Mills Pond Pool (weather permitting). 


General Information
Explorers Day Camp is held Monday-Friday from 9:00am to 4:00pm at Mills Pond Park. After care is offered from 4:00pm to 5:30pm daily for an additional fee. In the event of bad weather or extreme heat, camp is held indoors at the Canton Community Center at 40 Dyer Ave. To remain updated on any changes in the location of camp, please download the Remind App and join the Explorers Day Camp 2023 class (class code: @expcamp23)
That is the quickest and easiest form of communication between our staff and parents/guardians.

All parents will have to sign and submit the acknowledgement page either via email to cboughton@townofcantonct.org or by dropping it off in person at the Parks & Recreation office prior to the first day of camp.
