CAMPS at AGAWAM
For more than 40 years, Agawam has offered summer Camps for its youngest members and their friends rising into first through tenth grades. Regardless of age, each Agawam camp week is filled with summer fun, sun, and exertion on our 130 acre property. With a thoughtful approach to structuring campers’ days, activities, professional instruction, courses and courts are tailored to each child’s age and ability. All campers benefit from cooling off in our heated pool and satisfying their appetite with a healthy meal at our Lunch Box cafe.
Camp Agawam is geared towards children rising into 1st through 6th Grade. Children are grouped by grades 1-3 and 4-6, or according to skill level. For Summer of 2021, Camp Agawam will be offered the weeks starting June 14, June 21, June 28, July 19, July 26, August 2, August 9, August 16 and August 23. Camp Agawam runs from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. daily.
Agawam reserves the right to cancel camp days or partial days with one day advance notice if rain forecast will require us to remain inside for most of the day.
In the morning, campers rotate into different clinics led by Agawam’s professional golf and racquets staff.
With our Racquets Professional, Dana Parziale, campers learn and improve upon essential racquets skills in a format that mixes conditioning, drills and games with top-notch instruction. Subject to state level regulations in the summer of 2021, Our racquets program includes tennis, squash and pickleball, so each camper is sure to find a sport he/she likes.
Over on the golf course, our Golf Professional, Norm Alberigo and his PGA certified staff lead children on a number of drills and games are used to teach everything from hand-eye coordination to traditional golf skills. Children get plenty of time to work on chipping, putting and driving with instruction from our seasoned golf professionals.
As with all sporting at Agawam, our intention is to help children find the joy in sport with a friendly and fun approach to learning and tuning skills.
Between and after clinics, campers have the opportunity to enjoy our sun-soaked pool and other fun and creative activities led by our counselor team. Recent campers have: built and tested boats in the pool, created comic books and graphic novels, made tie-dyed clothing and learned a variety of ways to craft friendship bracelets.
When time and interest permit, the professional chefs at Agawam have led the campers in cooking clinics where they’ve made pizza, pies and smoothies from scratch.
In short, Camp Agawam staff and councilors have the expertise and flexibility to tailor each week's program to campers' ages and interests.

COVID-19 Info: We successfully ran Camp in 2020 without any COVID-19 incidents impacting the program. We are experienced at managing through the uncertainty and regulations. We have an FAQ for Parents. We also encourage you to read the COVID-19 Checklist as you will have to attest to your risk and symptom factors each day at drop-off.
Capacity Constraints: Due to COVID-19, we are constantly evaluating capacity. In the chance we find we've hit capacity or have to manage around a new regulation, we will be required to cancel (and refund) or move weeks for any given camper. We will notify as promptly as possible in such a case.
Cancellation Policy: Parents may be uneasy about signing up for camps due to uncertainty around COVID-19. If you choose to cancel for any reason by 2 weeks prior to any given camp week, you will be entitled to a full refund. Accordingly, our cancellation policy is that we will provide a full refund if the whole week of camp is cancelled before a camp week starts. Agawam reserves the right to cancel single camp days or partial days with no notice if a COVID-19 exposure occurs, or with one day advance notice if rain forecast will require us to remain inside for most of the day.
