DETROIT (WWJ) - Looking for something fun and engaging for your kids to do this summer?

The Detroit Recreation Department announced the return of its popular Summer Day Camps for children 3 to 14 years of age, thanks to a grant from the Kellogg Foundation.

The Recreation Department will hold early registration, for Detroit residents only, for the Summer Day Camp program on Saturday, May 4, from 9 a.m. until noon at the Belle Isle Casino. On-site registration, for Detroit residents only, will take place May 6 through May 17. Open registration, for all residents, will be held from May 20 through May 31.

This year, camps are organized into three age groups:

  • Ages 3 – 5 at Adams/Butzel Complex and Young Recreation Center
  • Ages 6 – 12 at Adams/Butzel Complex, Heilmann Recreation Center and Young Recreation Center
  • Ages 11 – 14 at Lasky Recreation Center

All day camps will take place June 24 through August 16, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.

The camps will offer arts and crafts, aquatics programming, team sports, field trips (additional fee may apply), and a special camp t-shirt. The summer culminates with “Day Camp Day.”

A $425 camp fee must be paid in full at the time of registration with a money order or cashier’s check made payable to Recreation Activity Fund.
