In the Good Old Summertime

What plans have you made to keep your kids having fun and engaged this summer? The Club has several day camps for kids ages 6-13, like Ocean Adventures, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Jam Camp to keep them busy during the lazy days of summer.

Registration for summer day camps is now open. A $25 non-refundable deposit is required for each week to reserve your child’s spot; the balance can be paid the first day of camp. Plus, there is a multi-child enrollment discount of $5 for each additional child.

All of the day camps are held at the Martin V. Smith Youth Center, 1900 W. 5th Street. For more information contact Kimberly Salinas at 815-4999. Check out this year’s exciting Day Camps:
