New tech tool makes summer daycamp planning easier
The snow is melting and it’s time to start thinking about summer! Parents can get a head start on planning children’s summer adventures with City of Edmonton daycamps. These camps are a great way to keep kids active and engaged all summer long.
Finding the perfect camp has never been easier than with the convenience of using myrecguide. Parents can use the online application to create a personalized summer daycamp guide, sorting camps by age, location and theme creating a customized list of camps.
Registration opens on Wednesday, March 16, and can be done online or by calling 311.
To browse the complete program offerings, parents can flip through the 2016 Summer Daycamps Guide. This guide includes all City of Edmonton daycamps, whether they’re located at City attractions, Recreation and Leisure Centres, River Valley Parks or within many neighbourhoods.
Summer daycamps are offered for children ages two to 17. Camp activities include fine and visual arts, sports, science, history, and outdoor skills. Locations throughout the city mean parents can find camps conveniently located near work or home. For youth between 13 and 17, volunteer positions are also available. These positions help youth develop skills and build their resumes.
