Summer Camp

Camp Dates

June 7 - August 13

Registration Start Date:

Wednesday, February 17

Registration Deadlines

Campers must be registered by 5:00 pm, the Thursday prior to the session start date to avoid the $25 late fee.

What will the camp day be like?

Children will be playing! Camp days will include a variety of activities, most of which will take place outdoors at the Heritage Park complex. Although children will not go on field trips this year, campers will go the Family Aquatic Center, enjoy watching special performances and participate in theme day activities. A weekly calendar of activities will be provided closer to the start of camp.

Will campers go to the Family Aquatic Center this summer?

Yes! All camps, with the exception of Tiny Tots Camp, will visit the Family Aquatic Center. Preschool Campers will only use the Splash Pad. The specific days and times will be provided closer to the start of camp. Swim lessons are also provided to campers in grades K-8 during the camp day. Pre-registration is required and there is an additional cost. All swim lessons take place at our indoor pool.
