The City of Parkland is universally known as a family friendly community. That moniker has been earned over time and is due, in large part, to the City’s unwavering commitment to activities for children. And nothing shows that commitment more than the City’s summer camp programs run from June 19 – August 11th. Literally something for every child—even if you do not live in Parkland. Not only is there a wide variety of activities for each summer camp day, but there are different formats to accommodate even the most liberal family vacation schedule. Indoor and outdoor activities, field trips, healthy competitions, and even add-ons that enable parents to tailor their child’s summer camp experience to best meet the child’s needs.
So how does it work? Look at the camp menu, pick your camp, pick your length of time, choose your add-ons, and let the fun begin.
KIDS CAMP is open to children in grades K-5. Campers will meet at Park Trails Elementary School during the week for a variety of games and activities including
field trips and special events. Days will consist of sports, arts and crafts, handcrafted sea life bottle art making, team building, games, and much more. With two exciting field trips per week, there is sure to be something fun for your little ones.
