Summer Day Camp

July 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:00am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until August 13, 2021

The City of Aiken PRT Department will host nine weeks of Summer Day Camp at the H. Odell Weeks Activities Center, 1700 Whiskey Road. Registration opens April 1st! You can register at Odell Weeks or online at cityofaikensc.gov/prtregistration (for online registration, you must already have an account set up with the City). Day Camp is offered in weekly sessions; June 14 – August 13 from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM. Carline drop-off begins at 7:30 AM and pickup ends at 5:30 PM. Camp will not be held Monday, July 5, 2021. Dates are subject to change based on local school calendars or other circumstances.

This fun-filled camp is for children ages 5 – 12 (children must be within this age range at the start of the session). The cost is $75 per week for City Residents or $95 per week for individuals who reside outside of the City limits. Non-Residents without an annual Recreation Membership must pay an additional $20 non-resident fee per child, per session.

Each themed weekly session encourages children to let their imagination run wild: Got Talent, Safari Week, Stars and Stripes, Discovery, A Bugs Life, Under the Sea, Wacky Week, Rolling thru Summer, and Color Wars. Campers will create arts and crafts, explore the outdoors, enjoy entertainment from special guests, conduct science experiments, slide and swim in the new pool at Smith-Hazel, all while making new friends! Parents will need to provide a lunch, snack, and drinks each day. You can register for one session or all nine, but hurry because space is limited!

All counselors are trained in CPR, First Aid, and AED. They are also certified in Defensive Driving. Our Coordinators continue to monitor and implement recommendations from the CDC and SC DHEC for safety protocols for schools and childcare facilities to provide a safe environment for your child this summer. If you would like to know more about our plans, you can reach out to acribb@cityofaikensc.gov.

Fun Funds, a youth scholarship program, is available to help off-set the cost of camp for those who qualify. Ask a staff member for more details on the application process.

The City of Aiken Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Department invites people of all ability levels to enjoy programs, parks, and facilities.
