If your kiddos are looking for a traditional experience that includes hiking and exploring the great outdoors, check out the Environmental Education Center’s Nature Camp. Programs are available to kids as young as 6 and up to 12 years old. When campers arrive at Veterans Oasis Park, they gather together for some morning games that include strategy and teamwork. After that, kids hike through the nature preserve, play games, make crafts, conduct experiments, eat lunch and snack and enjoy daily theme activities.

For a fun-filled active camp experience, check out sports camp at the Snedigar Recreation Center. This is your chance to give your little athletes a taste of soccer and football. Campers ages 5-12 years old begin the day with a group assembly, stretching and warm-up activity, and a fitness focus of the day. Throughout the day, kiddos will participate in sports, along with games, arts and crafts, and outdoor play.

It’s ok to make a mess at Tumbleweed Recreation Center’s camp. There’s so much to offer at this creative space designed for artists to learn, collaborate and inspire. When you pick them up you’ll find that they spent a full day exploring art, being creative and playing and that they’re not ready to go home. Each day they explore the great outdoors and incorporate nature into their creations. Every week focuses on a different theme and includes games, swimming, sports and special field trips.
