Summer Camp

For four weeks each summer, the beautiful Fran Mark Rec Park comes alive with “Summer Camp”! Send your grade school age child off to full day summer camp right in your neighborhood. Each day there are morning swimming lessons, crafts and cooperative games, but the entire afternoon is devoted to free play so our kids have the experience of a summer afternoon where they can decide what to do, and learn the valuable lesson of how to entertain themselves.

Registration is closed for July.  Registration is still open for camp in August. (as of 7-16-2019)
