Summer Camps for Children Ages 3 to 18
With an astonishing variety of themes offered at nine park locations, you’re sure to find a day camp to please every child in your household. While the camps are educational, your kids will be having so much hands-on fun they won’t even realize they are really learning. The weekday camps run from June 13 to August 12 and include offerings for children interested in nature and junior naturalist research; arts and crafts; theater, stage magic, dance and performance; scientific exploration; computer skills for web design, movie, and video game design; aquatics and snorkeling; and nearly any sport or outdoor recreation interest you can imagine. This year features the introduction of many new camp subjects.
