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:
