About Ayer
map
The history of Ayer Massachusetts dates back to 1667 when the first mill was built. Ayer was originally part of Groton and was incorporated as a town in 1871.

The town was named in honor of Dr. James Cook Ayer who provided the funding for the construction of Town Hall. Ayer's growth was greatly influenced by the development of the railroad for transportation during the mid 19th century.

Though it is a fairly small town in size of only 9.5 square miles, Ayer became a major junction for east-west and north-south rail lines thereby developing into an important commercial center.

Camp Devens was located in Ayer and was established in 1917 at the onset of World War I and renamed Fort Devens in 1932. With the presence of thousands of military and civilian personnel, the town's commercial development shifted to meeting their needs until Fort Devens was closed in 1996.

Ayer is a reflection of its history today. In its small area the town proudly hosts numerous industries, a thriving historical downtown that is unique to the region and modern commuter rail service to Boston.

The Peter Pan Center's Indoor Door Kids Vacation Camp - Summer 2015

Do you have an indoor kid?  One that prefers building Legos over swimming in the lake?  Or a Minecraft mind that would love to meet other kids who play?  Or maybe your child struggles a little with social nuance.

Our summer Indoor Kids Camp will help kids who struggle at making friends and provide them with the tools they need to understand personal interactions and find greater social success when they return to school in the fall. Our programs are tailored for maximum fun to include all children, whether they need a layer of social support or not.

We don't believe that learning good social skills needs to be clinical or complicated. Kids will play board games, build using Legos, enjoy Minecraft, play on the Wii, etc., participate in recess games such as Four Square, Kickball etc.  It is in this realistic environment, that they are professionally coached and given the tools they need to succeed at developing and maintaining relationships. For any child between the ages of 7-12 prefers to be indoors rather than out, or who struggles in social environments, this program is the perfect answer!
