Whether you're looking for a week-long traditional summer day camp for your child, or a specialty camp that focuses on one interest, the City of Kennesaw Parks & Recreation Department has you covered.
Soccer, baseball and tennis camps to video game design, LEGO engineering and
skateboarding camps -- dozens of programs will be offered this year at city
facilities, including the Ben Robertson Community Center, Adams Park and
“Our camps provide a great place for youth to learn and play, get outdoors, develop skills, and make new friends,” said Recreation Programs Coordinator Lindsey Pritchard in a news release.
To ensure the ultimate experience for your child, the city recommends the following guidelines to help you choose the right camp:
· Find a camp that matches your child’s interest, abilities and personality. While the decision will ultimately be based on your own sense of what your son or daughter will enjoy and be challenged by, input should also come from your child.
· If you’re considering a sports or specialty camp, remember that your child doesn’t have to be an expert on the subject. General interest is much more important than innate talent or technical ability.
According to the American Camp Association, a leading authority in child development, “regardless of activity, the tradition of having fun, learning valuable life lessons, and making friends remains an essential part of the camp experience.”
Camp registration begins on March 29 for Kennesaw city residents and April 12 for non-city residents. For more information, call (770) 422-9714 or visit www.kennesaw-ga.gov/pkrec.
