This Weekend In Parks
Register for Summer Camp
Registration begins today for the NYC Parks Experience Summer Day Camp program! This program is an exciting chance for children to have a fun-filled summer. Your child will engage in sports, fitness, and outdoor adventure and take part in many of New York City’s rich cultural and educational opportunities. Campers will hike through local parks, learn to play sports, swim in Parks pools, travel to museums, engage in environmental education and participate in a wide variety of structured activities.
The 2012 NYC Parks Experience will begin on July 9 and will end on August 24. Day camps operate weekdays only. Children must be between the ages of 6 to 13 by the start of the program on July 9, 2012. The only exception is Raymond O'Connor Park, which offers a summer camp program (with no trips or swimming) for children ages 3 to 6½ on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
For more information on the registration process which begins today and ends on Monday, March 12, can be found at www.nyc.gov/parks.
