Kids stay busy with sports, games, crafts and field trips. Each week has a different theme.

The camp is in its second week, but registration is still open.

“They could actually sign up at anytime,” explained Reggie Davidson, with the Parks and Recreation Department. “They have the option to sign up for all ten weeks, or they could sign up one week at a time, depending on the interest of the kiddo that wants to attend camp.”

Registration for Summer of Discovery must be done in person at the recreation center.

According to recreation officials, there are more than 20 new classes being offered this year.
