Summer Youth Programs

We offer a variety of summer camps planned and lead by seasonal staff counselors for elementary and middle school age children. In addition, other department camp and program offerings are available online.

Camps offer children a fun, active, safe and supervised environment with planned activities like arts, crafts, sports, games, field trips, special visitors and more. Unless assistance is pre-arranged, children must be able to independently follow directions, exhibit age-appropriate social skills and function in a highly stimulating group environment.

Annually, summer camps are open for registration the first part of April. Stay up to date with our Discover Recreation brochure.
