Opt for summer camps and keep kids active
Summer is right around the corner, and the longer days can leave busy parents with time to fill for their kids. The Town has the solution – Parks and Recreation will be offering a wide range of youth camps all summer long. Keep your kids active while they are out of school by signing them up.
Running from late May to early August, the Town’s summer camps reach preschool to high school ages, with a variety of themes. A full list of summer camp offerings, locations, times and prices can be found at CRgov.com/camps
