Playground Group
Join us for Junior Hillers Playground Group 2023! 

A Hopkinton tradition for over 30 years!

Our mission this summer remains the same as always: to provide a safe place for kids to get outside and be active, to make some new friends and reconnect with old ones, and most importantly, have fun.

The majority of our enthusiastic and engaging counselors including our Director, Julia Thissell, attended Playground Group themselves and are eager to pass on the fun memories they have of their time at Playground Group.

Junior Hillers meet at Elmwood School for a week full of sports, Olympic events, and games like the always popular Pillow Polo! There will be two weekly trips to Sandy Beach, tie-dye, arts and crafts, water balloons and more. The week ends with an Olympic Ceremony, prizes, pizza and popsicles. 


Activities include:
Field Day Games

Team Sports
Arts & crafts, including the always popular tie dye!
Field Trips to Sandy Beach & Water Wizz
Playground time
Music & movies when the weather is not ideal for outdoor activities

Check out our extended day option! You've spoken, we listened. Our extended day program runs until 5:30pm.
