Overview:
We are thrilled to be planning summer programs for 2021.  During an uncertain year with many camps impacted by the pandemic, Saco Parks and Recreation led the charge in 2020, offering one of the few recreational summer camps in our area.  With our experienced team, we are ready to resume the fun and safe environment we are able to provide to our community this summer once again, and bring back a fan favorite program with the return of our Twin City Theater Academy.


As we plan for summer 2021, our programs will be shaped by current health trends in our area and state guidelines.  All state mandated requirements will be factored into enrollment maximums and developing COVID-19 prevention protocols.  To that end, any information on this site is subject to change throughout the spring and final protocols will be adopted based on guidelines at the time of service.

Thank you for your interest in our summer programs.  We want to make this our best summer ever and offer a fun, positive experience for both our participants and our staff! Our team has the experience to offer quality safe programs in our community and will make summer 2021 a summer to remember! Please continue to watch this site for updates!
