Located at 210 Essex Street, Middleton, MA, the possibilities at Camp Creighton are endless for boys and girls ages 6-14. Camp Creighton runs for 8 weeks, in one-week sessions featuring a weekly theme. Whether it be the ice cream truck making a surprise appearance, barbeques which include a DJ featuring karaoke or making life-long friends, Camp Creighton is the vacation destination for kids.

Please note: Enrollment is limited by our license. It is advised that you enroll your child for as many sessions as necessary to ensure that a space will be available for your camper.
