Description: PRD Day camp is an outdoor camp that takes place at the Community park South Complex. This includes Community Park Pool, Community Park South Fields, Community Park playgrounds and basketball courts, and Community Park North. 

The camp day is filled with activities such as games, sports, arts & crafts, trips to the playground, and nature walks. The camp day may also include special performances like magic, science, and animal shows. 

Campers come to the pool at noon each day for lunch and swimming

During inclement weather, the camp typically moves indoors to Community Park Elementary School

Day Camp Swim Lessons 

Swim Lessons will be offered on Tuesday/Thursday mornings at the pool (No camp or lessons on Tuesday, July 4). A counselor will bring the campers over to the pool on those days for their lesson at their designated time. Times are designated by camper grade level. 

Lessons will be offered in two formats this summer:

3-Week Swim Lesson Program for Beginner & Intermediate Swimmers (Must be registered for camp weeks 1-3 and/or Camp weeks 4-6):
Participants for the 3-week session must be registered for either all of weeks 1-3 of day camp and/or all of weeks 4-6 in order to participate in the 3-week session. Each class in the 3-week session will build upon the prior class. Parent/Guardian must select either beginner or intermediate level for their child at registration.
Weeks 1-3 Lessons: Tuesday/Thursday morning (no camp/lesson on 7/4):5 classes total: $38
Weeks 3-6 Lessons: Tuesday/Thursday morning: 6 classes total: $45

1-Week Swim Lesson Program for Beginners: 
This 1-week class is intended for families who are only interested in having their swimmer do one week of classes (two total classes, Tuesday and Thursday) OR who are not registered for one of the consecutive 3-week sessions of day camp (Weeks 1-3 and Weeks 4-6). Both classes in this 1-week session will focus on the basics of water safety and are intended for beginner swimmers only. 
Participants may register for multiple 1-week swim lesson sessions during the summer if they so choose. 
This option will not be offered during the week 2 of camp due to the 4th of July holiday occurring Tuesday of that week. 
Available for weeks 1, 3,4,5 & 6 of camp: 2 classes per week: $15/week
