An idyllic setting

Summer Program

The Pennfield School at Little Slocum Farm is an idyllic setting for summer camp. Located on 19 acres of farmland, our tree-lined campus boasts state-of-the-art facilities. Campers will enjoy use of our gymnasium, athletic fields, playgrounds, art studio, computer lab, science lab and auditorium. Our goal is to ensure children have fun and develop friendships. Our thematic camps combine recreation with educational content, and are led by a dedicated staff of educators and camp instructors. We are committed to being a joyful place, where students learn by example the importance of honesty, integrity, generosity and humor.

Thank you for your interest in registering for summer camp. As we think about the Pennfield community and what is best for our community during all that is going on in the world, the school administrators have decided we will not offer Pennfield sponsored summer camps on campus. The reason is straightforward. Throughout the summer, the administrative team along with our Medical Advisory Committee will be focusing on the safe opening of school in September, following the guidelines and procedures outlined by the RI Department of Health, the RI Department of Education, and the Centers for Disease Control. Limiting access to the school building over the summer months will allow us to make physical changes to classrooms and other spaces, as needed, and allow administrative resources to have the time to properly inform, train, and educate our community about new protocols. Safety is our first priority. 

For anyone who has already registered,your money will be fully refunded.  The health and safety of your children and Pennfield employees is our number one concern. Thank you for understanding. Camps will be back up and running for the 2021 season!
