|(Seguin) -- Enrollment is now underway for the city of Seguin Parks and Recreation Just for Kids Summer Day Camp. Recreation Superintendent Lindsay Hajek says kids are invited to play and learn throughout the summer. |
"Just For Kids Summer Day Camp is a camp for our youth here in Seguin. It's open to any kids though, it doesn't have to be children that go to our school district here. Any kids that have finished kindergarten and they can't be older than 11 years of age, so that's kids going into the 6th grade. We have a lot of fun things planned for the kids. We go on field trips every Thursday with the kids. We take our kids to our parks here in town, we go to the wave pool, the splash pad here, and then we also have our camp at the Seguin Coliseum at the Events Complex where we'll do tons of crafts and activities, clubs -- we keep the kids very busy throughout the summer," said Hajek.
Hajek says campers are welcome to attend any of the available weeks that still have spots open this summer. She says the camp runs Monday through Friday from June 11th to August 10th.
Hajek says in addition to weekly themes, the camp this year will offer something new.
"This year, we're actually have a new program that we're focusing on called 'Growing Up Wild' where we want to introduce the kids to more of the nature outdoorsy stuff. So we want to keep these kids outside with full of activities, always moving and never a dull moment at summer camp," said Hajek.
Hajek says due to the popularity of the camp, families wishing to take advantage of the program are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible.
We fill them up into sessions. They are week sessions and kids can do just one week of the summer or they can come every single week for the eight week summer. We're actually closing our registration pretty quickly here. We're full on many of our sessions. We only have a few very limited spots available. So if parents want to get their kids in just a couple of slots, they need to sign up as soon as possible," said Hajek.
Each week offers a field trip plus trips to the Seguin Wave Pool and Park West Splash Pad. Field trips include but are not limited to The DoSeum, Urban Air Trampoline Park, Blazer Lazer Tag, The Roller Cade and Incredible Pizza.
Cost is $75 per week plus a $25 registration fee. The camp will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Seguin Coliseum. Registration is available at the Seguin Parks and Recreation Department located at Max Starcke Park.
