Indoor Summer Camps: Ages 5-12 yrs old
Johnson County Park and Recreation District is home to many different summer camps where it is a great place to be a kid! Indoor summer camps are held at various locations in the Gardner School District.  Camps are directed by highly qualified individuals and all camps are fully licensed by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.  Each day of  camp offers a new variety of activities which will get your children outside and moving.  Activities will include outdoor play time, sports, creative arts, weekly swimming and field trips (pending KDHE travel approval), group games and socialization. Children must be five (5) years of age and have completed Kindergarten.

Space is Limited, register early!
