K.I.D.S. Camp has been providing fun-filled summers to local children since 1972. When the program started it was host to a mere 20 children each day. In 2022, over 200 children participated throughout the course of the program. Each year the Parks and Recreation Department’s K.I.D.S. Camp staff works hard to make each summer a unique and joyful experience for all our campers.
In 2023, K.I.D.S. Camp will have programming to present your child with a safe and fun-filled seven weeks of crafts, sports, games, experiments, swimming trips, and friendships!
K.I.D.S. Camp is offered to children ages 7-12 years old. Camp is based out of Memorial Park and is from 9:00am-3:00pm Monday through Friday for 7 weeks. Camp check-in runs from 9:00am to 9:30am and check-out runs from 3:00pm to 3:30pm.

Before and After Camp Care
The child must be enrolled in camp for the same days as they wish to be enrolled in Before and/or After Camp. Before camp takes place at the Skate Shelter and begins at 7:30am and carries into the start of the regular camp day of 9:00am. Campers may NOT be dropped off earlier than 7:30am. After Camp takes place at the Skate Shelter and begins at the end of the camp day at 3:30pm and runs until 5:00pm. Campers MUST be picked up by 5:00pm. Late pick ups will result in an automatic fee added to your account. If the fee is not paid by the next day, access to camp will not be granted.
