Summer Youth Programs

Parks and Recreation staff led camps offer children a fun, active, safe and supervised environment with planned activities like arts, crafts, sports and games. Campers must be able to independently follow directions, exhibit age-appropriate social skills and function in a highly stimulating group environment.

Camps are designed to be an outdoor program, to the greatest extent possible. Campers and staff will move indoors only in the event of inclement weather (heat index over 90 degrees, rain or thunder).
