About the Program

The highlight of the summer recreation program is the Camp Poppasquaw. This is a 7-week program for Bristol children between the ages of 6 and 14. The program provides a wide variety of activities as well as many special day trips. Transportation is provided from the Town Common, Vet's Park, Coelho Park, Cedarcrest Park, and Sowams Parks, to the Town Beach. Each child is placed into age appropriate groups and supervised daily by a trained staff member.

We also have specialty staff, for tennis, music/dance, and arts & crafts.
