Printed copies of the guide will also be available after Feb. 2 at all JCPRD facilities and Johnson County libraries.
Registrations for camps will begin on Monday, Feb. 2. Online registration begins at 6 a.m., and in-person registration begins at 8:30 a.m. at the JCPRD registration offices located in Building D in Antioch Park at 6501 Antioch in Merriam.
Camp registrations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Many camps fill quickly, so don’t delay or you may find your first choices unavailable.
In all, 63 camp programs are listed in this year’s guide, including camps for ages three through 17. Camps range from full-day programs to partial-day programs serving a variety of interests. Most full-day camps offer weekly sessions with weekly start dates from June 1 through July 27, while other camps begin throughout the summer. This year’s camps take place at 25 locations throughout Johnson County. For the convenience of working parents, most full-day programs provide supervision and self-directed activities from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
For kids, JCPRD camps offer an opportunity to learn about topics they’re interested in without tests or boring lectures. Areas of emphasis include: recreation, arts and crafts, nature and environment, computers, sports, leadership development, science, field trips, theater, and dance. New camp offerings this year include: Nature Preschool Camp; Young Explorers Camp; Fashionista Camp; Makers Studio Camp; Clues, Crimes, and Culprits Camp; Biking Camp, Summer Daze Camp, and Basketball Camp.
Several additional summer sports camps will be listed in our May through August Activities Catalog, due out March 23.
Our camps offer parents the comfort of knowing their kids are in a safe, well-supervised, and fun-filled environment. There’s also an emphasis on encouraging healthy, active lifestyles.
All district camp programs fully comply with Kansas Department of Health & Environment requirements. Camp directors possess extensive experience with children and in their specialized areas of expertise.
