The Recreation & Parks Department will continue to offer extended day camps at nine recreation centers starting Monday, Aug. 17, to provide an alternative location where children can participate in their remote learning classes. The day camps will be offered from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at a cost of $25 a week.

Children will be able to use the Wi-Fi connections at participating recreation centers to access the internet. Participants should bring their laptop or learning device (fully charged), school supplies, and a bagged lunch/snack. After classes are over for the day, the staff will offer recreation and leisure activities. 

The program is available for students of all ages, with a limit of 18 students per site. Social distancing measures will be in place and students should wear masks.

Parents can register their children at the recreation center they will use starting Monday at 7:30 a.m. A fillable registration form is posted at WePLAY.ws. Parents should bring the completed form with payment to the center they will use. Contact your desired location to ensure there is space.

The day camps will be offered at the Hanes Hosiery, Little Creek, Martin Luther King Jr., Miller Park, Minnie Lee Davis Harris, Polo Park, Sedge Garden, William C. Sims Sr. and William Roscoe Anderson Jr. recreation centers.
