Welcome to WCC's Camp Whitin!
Welcome campers! For over 30 years, WCC’s Camp Whitin has prided itself on providing fun, youth-oriented summer camps for children between the ages of 4-13 throughout the Blackstone Valley. Whether it is an activity, educational or sport camp, every camper will enjoy an experience full of fun, fitness, and friendships! We believe WCC’s Camp Whitin distinguishes itself from other area camps in the quality of programming, the experience and enthusiasm of the counselors, and the wide variety of choices we offer. Our FREE pizza Friday will return again this year! What also distinguishes WCC’s Camp Whitin apart from other camps is our ability to spend much of our time outdoors in our 7.5 acre Whitin Park! NEW this year, we will be splitting each CW Sport & CW Activity camp into two groups based on age and ability for the activities. However, they will all be together during snack, lunch, and swim times.
What makes WCC’s Camp Whitin really great is YOU! Every summer we have the pleasure of hosting upwards of 400 campers who become part of the Whitin Community Center family. We are proud to have made a positive impact on thousands of local youth and love to hear stories of campers’ favorite camp memories. Whether you have been coming to WCC’s Camp Whitin for years or this is your first summer joining us, we welcome you. Looking forward to seeing you at camp!

Depending upon the camp, children will be outside in our 7.5 acre Whitin Park or Pavilion(next to WCC) unless weather causes us to be in our gymnasium, or our activity rooms. Campers (ages 7-13) also have the opportunity to swim in our Competition Pool daily.

Located outside, drop off is available beginning at 6:30am, and the camper(s) can remain in this program up to 6:00pm. CW Extended Care is NOT part of the camp day. NEW! This year, CW Extended Care will include structured activities! Each day will include a new craft, game, and physical activity for campers to participate in. They will have a choice to participate in any of the activities throughout the CW Extended Care period. Staff will monitor campers until they are picked up and provide a safe, positive environment for your child. A Camp Whitin Director or Assistant Director will be present in the building while campers are in our care.
CW Extended Care is for the full week for both morning and afternoon sessions and cannot be broken down by day or specific mornings or afternoons. Campers MUST be pre-registered for this program.
