The City of Ocala’s summer camps for children between the ages of 5 to 12 are beginning at the end of the month, and registration is still open.
The camps, which are hosted by the Ocala Recreation and Parks Department, will be held Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., starting on Tuesday, May 31 and ending on Friday, July 29.
The City Kids Summer Camp (ages 5 to 12) at E.D. Croskey Recreation Center (1510 NW 4th Street) and Lily’s Leaping Summer Camp (ages 6 to 12) at Lillian F. Bryant Community Center (2200 NW 17th Place) will both offer weekly camps with a different theme each week. Activities will include field trips to the pool, hands-on projects, games, and more.
There is a $50 weekly cost per camper for Ocala residents, and a $75 weekly cost per camper for non-Ocala residents.
Lunch will be provided on select days during both camps, and children will need to bring a packed lunch on the days the meal is not provided.
A third camp is also available for children between the ages of 8 to 12 at the Discovery Center (701 NE Sanchez Avenue). Children participating in the Discovery Center Summer Camp will enjoy hands-on learning with games, crafts, and experiments that explore a different science theme each week.
There is a $115 weekly cost per camper for Discovery Center members, and a $130 weekly cost per camper for non-members. There is also a one-time, non-refundable $25 registration fee.
