Come Out & Play

Our Summer Day Camps are all about creating memories, exploring new adventures, making friends, and celebrating being a kid.

Play!

School's out for summer and we're ready for the recreation to start. Our summer day camps are all about exploring, discovering the fun things in life. Campers will get outside (weather permitting) and be active every single day. No more just veggin' out on the couch all day long. Our camps have a wide curriculum of activities to keep campers moving and more importantly having fun.

Love the lifetime leisure activities.

Whether it's swimming, crafting, kickball, play acting, reading, or mancala, we encourage and guide our campers to explore and experience a variety of lifetime leisure activities. Every day our campers have the opportunity for choice time activities as well as lessons to establish a new skill. Special lessons are even available for certain activities like swimming (location specific).

Adventures all summer long!

Think of summer and most will think of adventures at the pool with friends and awesome adventures visiting special places and that's what we do. Campers will go to the pool at least TWICE a week (yes, that's right twice) and go on educational and (more importantly) FUN field trips to places like museums, zoos, and more. At the end of the season, all of our campers gather together for a fun filled day of friendly teambuilding and competition at the Play Day.

Youth driven play.

Free play time allows campers freedom to choose an activity from something really active to something more quiet. The youth choice time gives campers options of a few different structured stations including gardening, makers space units, crafts, basketball skills, and lets not forget about the board games too!

At Parks and Recreation camps, participants will experience:

  • Recreation and Leisure Skill Building
  • Physical Fitness Through Active Play
  • Social Development
  • Nutrition Awareness
  • Nature Interaction
