DHSP Online/Offline Summer Programming

DHSP’s Free Online/Offline Summer Programming

Please note, to ensure that we have the systems in place to provide quality virtual programming for all of our families, we’ve delayed the start of programming.
Programming will not be held during the week of July 13 (Week 1).
Programming will now begin on July 20 (Week 2).

During Summer 2020, the Cambridge Department of Human Service Programs (DHSP) will offer free online/offline summer programming for Cambridge children in Kindergarten -- 8th grade!

  • Offline projects to do at home: cooking, creating, crafting and more!
  • Outdoor play and exercise supervised by DHSP staff

Registration Instructions
Registration is by week, with the option of enrolling in multiple weeks. Please select your child’s grade and preferred session (morning or afternoon) each week when registering. 
Please note that all activities are set to a wait list to help DHSP staff manage enrollment. We hope to accommodate as many families as we can and having a wait list will help us do that. You will receive an email within ten days with enrollment information.

Children must have completed one year of Kindergarten. Priority will be given to applicants eligible for free/reduced lunch.
