Information


  • Check-In: Please walk your child(ren) in and sign in/out each day in attendance at camp. If you know your child(ren) will not be coming to camp, please call us at 913.599.5785 or email jennifer.thomas@jocogov.org (We will have limited access to email during the summer). Make sure your child is sun screened and at camp 30 minutes prior to a field trip. We are on a strict schedule for our field trips and need to depart on time.


  • Snack: We are very excited to report that we have taken the Commit to Health Pledge! In doing so you can expect to see our summer camp participants engaging in more physical activity, learning about good nutrition, and eating healthier snacks while in attendance at JCPRD. Commit to Health is an initiative of the National Recreation and Park and Association and The Alliance for a Healthier Generation. Our staff has worked hard to develop a new food service menu that features items that are nutrient dense, low in fat, sugar, and sodium, as well as more fresh fruits and vegetables. Please support our efforts to help students develop healthy eating habits by encouraging them to be open to trying new foods and by reinforcing the benefits of nutritious diet. Healthy snacks and meals improve cognitive function, increase energy, and help children grow strong muscles and bones!


  • GEAR Time: Group Enrichment Achievement & Reading Time. On Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, when we return from the pool we will have a quiet time for reading and enrichment achievement time. We will have reading logs through the Johnson County Library that children can log their reading times throughout the summer, at the end of summer they can turn in and receive a free book. Please have your child(ren) bring in a book to read (we will have a small selection) or if they have summer homework packets they can have time at camp to work on it. Our staff will be happy to help in any way. We also will have kids brainstorm experiments and the schematics of it to do at camp.


  • Activities: We will have daily clubs; Walking club, kids will wear pedometers to track steps and at the end we will see how far across the world we have gone and Yoga & STEM Power Hour, Tennis club, Art Works, and much more themed activities every week.


  • Outside/Gym Time: We believe it is essential for minds and bodies to have mental health breaks and join in on fitness breaks. Weather permitting we will be outside for long period of times. Please make sure your child(ren) comes sun screened to camp and we will screen them every 2 hrs when outside. Please remember to have your child(ren) layer up and bring a jacket with their name labeled inside it. We will have structured activities for them to do during this time as well as free play.
