Summer 2023 - We will have:
✓ More Locations!
✓ More Programs!
✓ More School Meals!
Summer Stuff is the place to find summer schools, camps, programs, activities, and jobs. There are a lot of great things to do in and around Boston. For example, you could take dancing lessons, learn to sail or play tennis, act in a play, volunteer at a museum or homeless shelter, plan for college, get a job, intern in a science lab or on a farm, and go to free concerts and films. (You could even work on your math skills) Need ideas? Summer Stuff is full of good ideas. Read it through and visit websites or call. They're waiting to hear from you.
Also, visit State of Summer 2022, Boston After School & Beyond’s Summer 2022 page, to get an idea of what high-quality summer learning programs will be available in 2023.
Registration for 2023 will be open soon! Many programs are "first come/first served," and they fill up fast. Don't be put off by the cost of some programs. Many have scholarships or reduced fees based on what a family can pay, and they are looking for Boston students. Just ask. Some programs are only for students who go to the Boston Public Schools. Good luck—and have a great summer!
