Summer Recreation Day Camp


AMENDED VERSION OF THE SUMMER RECREATION DAY CAMP TO BE OFFERED JULY 6-AUGUST 14.

Summer Recreation Day Camp is a day camp for youth ages 6 (or have completed kindergarten) -12. The camp runs Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Campers will participate in a wide variety of activities including gym games, board games, crafts, on-site visits from outside businesses like Code Ninjas and Art Zone, and swimming at the Republic Aquatic Center.  Field trips will be limited to Republic locations only that are either outside (parks) or limited to only our group within the facility.  

GENERAL CAMP INFORMATION
Several changes have been made to the Summer Recreation Day Camp in response to COVID-19 and are outlined in the 2020 Parent Handbook.  Of note, there is a maximum of 50 campers per week.  All campers and staff will have their temperature checked upon arrival to camp, and anyone with a fever of 100.4 F or higher will not be allowed to attend camp for that day.  Hand washing will be encouraged throughout the day as well as sanitizing of shared supplies and equipment.  As mentioned above, field trips will be extremely limited, and transportation will NOT be provided to/from Summer School as in the past.  

REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Camp Fee:  $100.00/Camper/Week
One-Time Registration Fee:  $15.00/Camper 

All those that registered for camp prior to registration closing in April (due to COVID-19) have been divided into two "Early Bird" tiers and given priority registration over the general public. Spaces will open to the general public (if available) one week prior the start of each week.  Regardless of status (Tier #1, Tier #2, General Public), the payment schedule must still be followed.  The 2020 Payment Schedule can be found below.  Registration for camp can now be completed ONLINE at recdesk.republicparks.com (under Community Programs).  Online registration closes at 6:00 p.m. the Friday before each week.  Due to the limited amount of space available, all camp fees for 2020 are non-refundable and cannot be refunded or credited to another week of camp.
