Summer Camp – Lower Paxton Parks & Recreation offers endless opportunities for your child ages 6-12 to have a fun and memorable summer.  Our half-day summer camp program is designed to spark your child’s imagination, grow new friendships, and assist them in discovering adventure and enjoyment in outdoor play.  With creatively planned activities, campers enjoy a safe community to keep them structured and busy!

Camp will be offered Monday – Friday from 8a – 1p (Tuesday / Thursday 12-3pm Pool Time)  at one of the parks listed below.  We have coordinated with a local bus company to transport children on Tuesday and Thursday to Koons pool for an afternoon at the pool.  (We will transport kids to the pool at 12noon, and parents/guardians MUST pick up their child by 3pm at KOONS Park Pavilion #3.)  

Families can select any combination of weeks or all 10!  Pool Days are optional but must be pre-registered to attend when signing up for your camp week.  To ensure we are staffed accordingly for the upcoming week.  All registrations MUST be completed online by Thursday, the previous week. 

*All Staff are CPR/First Aid Certified, and have three current background clearances on file.  (State, Child Abuse and FBI)  Our staff is energetic and ready to provide a FUN summer for the campers!
