Day Camp Revamp! - PROGRAM GUIDE PAGES FOR ALL DAY CAMPS (Updated)
What's new for 2018?
- All-inclusive: camps that previously had an after-camp swim option now include swim time in the daily activities. You will no longer need to pick up kids early if swim is cancelled because of rain or temperature - counselors will provide alternate activities!
- Transportation: Campers attending Binder Adventure Camp and Camp Eagle now have the option for early drop-off at The Linc, 1299 Lafayette St., between 7:30 and 8:00 am. This replaces the multi-stop bus schedule. No more worrying about delayed bus pick-up!
- More camps: check out even more options for your camper! Newer camps include Washington Park Day Camp, Camp Green Berry, Kids Art Camp, LEGO® Camp, and Capital City Productions Camp.
- Deferred payment plan for day camps! Just pay a $25 deposit per week per camp at the time of registration and pay the balance in full for all camps by Thursday, May 24. Those using the deferred payment plan must register in person.
