In all, more than 55 camp programs for ages ranging from three to 18 are offered this year at 25 locations throughout Johnson County. Camps include from full-day programs which offer supervision from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and partial-day programs serving a variety of interests. Most full-day camps offer weekly sessions from May 28 through July 29, while other camps begin throughout the summer. For the convenience of working parents, most full-day programs provide supervision and self-directed activities from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

For kids, JCPRD camps offer an opportunity to learn about topics of interest to them. Areas of emphasis include: recreation, arts and crafts, nature and environment, computers, sports, leadership development, science, field trips, theater, and dance. For parents, our camps offer the comfort of knowing their kids are in a safe, well-supervised, and fun-filled environment. JCPRD camps also place an emphasis on encouraging healthy, active lifestyles.

Completely new camps this year include a two-week theatre camp, a summer art studio, a digital music production camp, four new Mad Science camps, and an expansion of sports offerings in the camp guide to include baseball, basketball, dodgeball, soccer, softball, and tennis.

All District camp programs fully comply with Kansas Department of Health & Environment requirements. Camp directors possess extensive experience with children and in their specialized areas of expertise.
