Summer Outburst

Hello! We are always excited for summer to arrive so our youth camps can begin. Kids entering 1st – 6th grade can take part in the SUMMER OUTBURST program. The program will be held at the Recreation Gym, 98 Richards Way and at the Larry D. Johnson Community Center, 1200 12th Street, based on enrollment. The camp feature fun-themed weeks with age appropriate activities, including arts/crafts, swimming 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.
