Childcare & Day Camps
Recreational Opportunities Catered to Kids (ages 5-12)
Weekdays, June 12-Aug. 25; 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m.; Veterans Memorial Community Center
Each week includes planned activities that promise to engage and fascinate kids through a variety of hands-on activities, games, crafts, songs, and much more! In addition to our great in-room activities, children will play outside at the playground, swim in the water park, and play large group games like kickball and soccer on the turf or outside. Field trips scheduled bi-weekly on Wednesdays. Field trips are optional and require additional registration and fees. Those who do not attend a field trip will engage in regularly scheduled activities at the community center.
Children will have the opportunity to sign up for swimming lessons or other on-site programs during the day while attending camp. Staff will take them to and from these activities. Swimming lessons and other on-site programs require an additional fee.
All participants receive a T-shirt and daily snacks. Participants must bring their own bag lunch daily for camp.
