Joplin Parks & Recreation Offering Summer Day Camp Program
Enrollment is underway with the Joplin Parks & Recreation summer day camp program for area children 5 to 12 years old. Children will participate in themed weeks throughout the summer and play sports, participate in arts and crafts, game room tournaments, as well as visit Ewert Aquatic Center for swim lessons and swimming.
The camp will be located at the Carver Nursery building at 520 S. School Ave. Camp hours are from 7:30am until 6:00pm, Monday through Friday, and breakfast and lunch will be provided to the campers. There is no registration fee for camp and parents can pay for the entire summer or pick and choose the weeks their child(ren) can attend.
The first week of camp starts June 6th. Cost is $94/week, but parents are encouraged to take advantage of the early bird special to receive $10 off each week of camp they prepay. The City of Joplin is offering 50% off each week to those who qualify.
To register, or for more information, please call the Joplin Athletic Complex at 417-625-4750 or visit joplinparks.org.
