Winter /Spring 2017 Program Guide


Spring Break Camp

We have your child's spring break covered with a fun & affordable week of camp.  Games, sports, craft activities, and more are planned for our Spring Break Camp being held at the John W. Pitts Recreation Center.  If weather is good, campers will be playing outside.  Campers will need to bring their lunch & drinks each day.  Rain or shine, this camp is sure to please!  Activity Fee: $85
Hey, check out the Paint with Pals activity, too - this would be great for a group of friends to do together!
