The Republic Parks & Recreation Department is accepting “Early Bird” registrations for the Summer Recreation Day Camp. Summer Recreation Day Camp is offered during the summer months for children ages 6 (or have completed kindergarten) – 12. Campers are given the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of activities during the summer including many exciting field trips, gym games, various clubs, crafts, frequent visits to the Republic Aquatic Center, and more. Past field trips have included Incredible Pizza, Titanic Museum, Andy B’s, Castle Rock Waterpark, Discovery Center, Wild Animal Safari, Springfield Skateland, Fantastic Caverns, Village Pottery, Sunshine Lanes, and many more locations!
The Summer Recreation Day Camp runs Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. (there will be no camp on Monday, May 29 or Tuesday, July 4). The cost for the program is $85.00 per child, per week ($10.00 discount for additional children in the family). If your child will be attending Summer School, the fee is $40.00 per child, per week ($5.00 discount for additional children in the family) during the four weeks of Summer School only. There are no discounted fees available for part-time. All field trips and activities are included in the weekly rates. Campers are required to bring a lunch and a snack to camp with them each day.
The first 120 people registered for the Summer Recreation Day Camp program are considered “Early Birds” and will receive priority when registering for each week of camp. “Early Birds” may choose to pay for the entire summer up front and receive a $5.00 discount per child, per week (all 11 weeks of camp MUST be paid for up front to receive the discount). “Early Birds” may also choose to pay for all weeks needed in advance, or follow the Payment Schedule if paying week by week. The Payment Schedule will be given out at the time of registration explaining the process in greater detail. At least one week of camp must be paid for at the time of registration. Enrollment forms will be available at the Republic Community Center or online at www.republicmo.com.
