The Wasco Recreation and Parks District Kids Summer Camp is back with a two-week session beginning July 24 to Aug. 3, Monday through Thursday, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., for ages 5 to 12. Kids will learn, play, create and imagine.
Activities include art, music, theater and sports; each week, there are two themes.
The themes for the first week will be debate and goal-getters. The second week's themes will be world festivals and astronauts and space.
WRPD Manager Chris Serna said that summer camp can positively impact a child by helping them learn about themselves.
"Summer camp offers kids a unique opportunity to learn about the world outside the traditional classroom setting while doing wonders for their personal growth and development."
She added, "Summer camp keeps kids in a growth mindset to adjust for the upcoming school year and is a short format that gives kids a chance to deeply explore a subject they may have a slight interest in."
Camp leaders are trained through Elevo Learning, an accredited curriculum that engages students and fosters social-emotional learning through fun, physically active games, sports and enrichment.
All summer camp materials will be included with the $55 registration fee, and campers will be provided with a healthy snack midmorning each day.

"We hope to see kiddos before they head back to school for a fun time at the park and with the fun themes that we will have," Serno said.
