Summer Outburst

Hello! We are excited for summer to arrive so our youth camps can begin. Kids entering 1st – 4th grade can take part in the SUMMER OUTBURST program (Recreation Gym, 98 Richards Way) while youth entering 5th-7th grade have an All New SO2 CAMP to explore at the Larry D. Johnson Community Center, 1200 12th Street. Both camps feature fun-themed weeks with age appropriate activities, including arts/crafts, swimming, field trips, bowling, games, Wild Island water slides and golf, skating, special guests and more! 

Children will truly benefit from this recreation experience by meeting new friends and having FUN in a safe environment. We attempt to maintain a 10:1 participant to staff ratio for the younger age groups and a 12:1 ratio for the older age groups. Program hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Activity Schedules for Summer Outburst and SO2 Camps: 

Week 8 (July 29-August 2, 2019): 1st grade; 2nd grade; 3rd grade; 4th grade; SO2 Camp: 5th-7th grade

Week 9 (August 5-9, 2019): 1st grade; 2nd grade; 3rd grade; 4th grade; SO2 Camp: 5th-7th grade
