Outdoor Summer Camps

Registration for our 2024 Summer Outdoor Camps will open on Jan. 29th at NOON!


Johnson County Park and Recreation District hosts a variety of summer camps that are available throughout the county at parks, schools and in community recreation facilities. All camps are fully licensed by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and are staffed by qualified, energetic and caring directors and counselors. Campers will develop health and happiness through safe, diverse, and character building experiences.
