Marlborough families are talking about summer camp. If your kids wish to attend a fun camp with a variety of activities, either half or full day, take a look at the recreation department camps in Marlborough, Northborough, and Southborough. The programs are affordable camp options with great activities and counselors. Northborough and Southborough don’t charge fees for out-of-town campers, so that is a plus. Some also have openings for April spring vacation programs. Below are the camp programs, the hours covered, and the fees for the camps.
