The Kennedy Summer Day Program (KSDP) provides children from across the city with a high-quality summer camp type experience at an extremely reduced rate and most often provides financial aid to eligible participants.

-range of services by providing daily transportation to and from camp, serving a healthy nutritious breakfast & lunch while providing a fun and educational summer experience to children.

KSDP offers a safe, structured environment for 8 weeks during the summer.
participants are divided into age groups (Grades 1 & 2, 3 & 4, 5 & 6, 7, 8 & 9).

-teens are given the opportunity to learn counselor in training skills and assist staff during the program. Each day participants travel from one learning experience to another.

arts & crafts, games, sports, swimming, boating, nature programs, field trips and partnering agencies who conduct hands-on learning workshops to further enhance the experience.

One partnership is with the New Bedford National Whaling Historical Park who provides programs which focus on environmental education and stewardship as well as historical interpretation of Fort Taber.

The New Bedford Art Museum ArtMobile visits once per
week and the New Bedford Public Library bookmobile provide opportunities to learn about arts and culture.
