Camp Health and Safety Information

The Recreation and Parks Department is committed to offering safe and high-quality, and enjoyable camp programs to all participants. The health and safety of all camp participants, staff, and their families remains our paramount goal. The structure and operations of all 2021 camp offerings have been adjusted in an effort to achieve and maintain the highest levels of health and safety while providing a rewarding camp experience. These revised structures and operations ensure compliance with all state and local health and safety guidelines. 

Among the health and safety practices adopted for camp programs are enrollment maximums which ensure social distancing, the wearing of masks by all campers and staff when indoors, and thorough cleaning of all camp spaces and equipment. Changes to these practices and policies may occur to ensure both the highest level of safety for all participants and compliance with all mandated guidelines and requirements.

Slime Time (Wednesday, November 24, 2021)

Who doesn't LOVE slime?! It's easy to make and guaranteed FUN! Some are magnetic, some are inspired by famous wizarding books. Others are glittery or glow in the dark. It doesn't matter how we make it, it's the fun that comes in figuring it out. Our slime camp is designed to see just how many ways and kinds of slime we can create. We'll discuss what an activator is and why no slime is complete without it. We'll learn how different ingredients will change the outcome, texture, and use of slime. Slime is awesome, but learning why it works is pretty cool too. Materials are included in the price of the camp.
