Register today for 2014 Summer Day Camp!
If your 5-10 year old child can comfortably spend the whole day away from home, enjoys being around many other children in an urban setting and likes being outdoors, then our full-day KIDS Camp may be for them! KIDS Camp also offers a Teen Leadership Program for children ages 11 and up.
KIDS Camp is located next to the West Side YMCA in Howard.
Camp activities may include crafts, team building, fitness fun, hikes, nature exploration, small and large group games, archery, skits, songs, field trips and more. You can also share in the camp experience with your child by attending the optional Family Night on Wednesday.
In addition to typical daily camp activities, each week at KIDS Camp offers a fun theme. Click here to see the Theme Weeks.
Bus transportation is provided to and from KIDS Camp, or you may choose to drop your child off directly at KIDS Camp.
