Camp Simmons and Teen Camp fees are $175 per-week.
Clubhouse Camp fees are $180 per-week, which includes lunch on Friday.
While we make every reasonable effort to accommodate group placement requests, specific group assignments cannot be guaranteed.
We feel that cost should not be the thing that gets in the way of a camper having a great Camp experience. Limited discounted fees are available to qualifying families by contacting Megan Sweeney at email@example.com or 203-869-3224 ext 103. Applications must be submitted a minimum of two weeks prior to the start of the weekly program.

Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Program
This leadership program is an opportunity for youth ages 14–15 to learn about working with children and developing leadership skills in a camp setting. CITs learn on-the-job skills to improve their confidence while serving as a role model for youth. CITs must complete a separate application and choose either Clubhouse or Camp Simmons locations for as many weeks as they would like. Space is limited, so apply early.
Summer Camp Refund Policy
We understand no matter how diligently one plans their family’s activities, situations may arise that require a change. However, as an organization, we must set guidelines that allow us to plan for our seasonal needs such as registration transactions, ordering equipment, supplies and assignment of staff. All of these activities have associated planning costs. For these reasons we have developed the following refund policy.
The Camp Director must receive notice of intent to withdraw by email. A full refund (less a $20 administrative fee per camper) will be issued if Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich receives in writing your intent to withdraw before June 1. No refunds or credits will be issued after this date unless it is an illness or injury, in which case a doctor’s note must be provided. Please allow 30 days for processing refunds. We will do our best to accommodate requests to modify a registration to an alternate week. Membership is non-refundable and not transferable.
Thank you for your understanding and support of Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich’s policies.
Clubhouse Camp is located on Horseneck Lane and offers an indoor Field House, outdoor field, 25-meter pool, arts & crafts and a technology center. Children also enjoy Summer Brain Gain, field trip opportunities, and daily activities including swimming lessons, games of table tennis, bumper pool and air hockey. Special Field Trips are offered throughout the summer as well as Thursday beach days via Ferry to Island Beach.
On Fridays a BBQ lunch is provided for every Clubhouse Camper, and is included in the registration fee.
Ages 6–12 • Clubhouse Camp • Half Day for Members Who Attend Summer School
Camp Simmons offers a traditional outdoor camp experience on 77 sprawling acres of pure wilderness on Lake Avenue in Greenwich. The property features an outdoor swimming pool, archery range and pond for boating and canoeing.
A BBQ lunch is available for purchase every day for $5 per day, in cash.
Camp Simmons Rain Days
There will be no refunds for rain days at Camp Simmons. Camp Simmons will be closed on rainy days, and parents will be notified by email at 7:00 am. Understanding that some parents rely on having their children at camp with no other child care accommodations, there will be a limited number of spaces for Camp Simmons campers to attend Clubhouse Camp on days when Camp Simmons is closed. Therefore, the weekly Thursday email will have a sign-up link for a limited number of campers on a first-come, first-served basis.
Teen campers can dive into summer at the Clubhouse on Horseneck Lane. Teens have access to a multi-sport court, turf field, swimming pool, and game room, while also participating in weekly field trips to locations such as Island Beach, Playland and sporting events.
