 • Aquatics (does not include spraygrounds)
 • 13-Recreation Summer Camps
 • 10-Roving Recreation Camps (park site programming)
 • 12-Outdoor Adventures (program designed to introduce youth and families to kayaking, photography, geocaching and mountain biking)

Program Benefits

Our camps provide opportunities for children to disconnect from technology and become more physically active. Campers experience success and become more confident by participating in team and individual activities and develop a life skill and interest in something they had little to no experience in. In addition, our campers become more independent by learning to do things on their own all while improving their social skills and making lasting friendships.
