the county of Prince George’s, Maryland, hopes to welcome area children “to a safe and fun summer” this year, officials announced Tuesday.
Varied summer camps are offered there focused on adapting to the imagination of children and the needs of their parents. Through the Parks Department, structured programs have been organized, both full day and half day, for children and adolescents from 3 to 17 years of age.
Registration began on Wednesday, March 15 through www.pgparks.com/629/Day-Camps-Summer-Playgrounds.
“This summer, we are working diligently to offer something everyone will love,” said Parks and Recreation Director Bill Tyler. “Something for every interest and every personality and ability, both in person and virtually.”
He said that with this objective measures are being taken “to maximize fun, imagination, activity and learning this summer”, in places where “parents feel safe and children and young people enjoy themselves.”
- Most sessions are two weeks long and run Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm.
- There is a childcare service at many of the summer camps.
- Parents or authorized guardians must sign children in and out.
- Enroll your child in as many summer day camp sessions as you like, while still planning for summer vacation.
- Before enrolling in summer programs, you must create or establish a free ParksDirect account.
