Boca Raton's City Summer Camps – What You Need to Know
Posted by Caesar Parisi on Tuesday, May 15th, 2012 at 4:07am.
Are you stressing out because you still haven't found something for your kids to do during the summer? Worried that you're going to be stuck hiring an expensive nanny to take care of your children while you work?
Thankfully, Boca Raton is looking out for you as the city provides official budget-friendly summer camps to all residents for children from first to eighth grade. Whether you're looking for a summer-long traditional summer camp or a more subjectively focused summer “program”, you'll find what you're looking for from Boca's wide array of publicly available summer activities.
The Traditional Camp is a 6 week long camp filled with about 3 field trips per week and countless fun activities, starting June 18th and extending until July 27th. There is the Traditional Camp, which is for children grades 1 through 5, and there is the 'Tween Camp for grades 6 to 8, so don't feel these are only for young kids. There are 3 weeks of extended camps available for an extra fee, and a Traditional Plus Camp that offers a field trip every single day for maximum fun. Of course, the Traditional Plus Camp also costs about $100 more per child.
If you're on a tight budget, don't anticipate needing supervision all summer, or just want to give your child some chill time at home, there are also week by week camps of the same style available. If you're going the week-by-week route, why not also take a look at some of Sugar Sand Park's Summer Programs? They're each a week long and focused on one subject, including:
- Video Production
- Make Your Own Music Video
- Theater Performance
- Business Training (It's called Billionaire Boot Camp, and it's a blast!)
- And many more...
Remember, these camps are here for your kids just as much as they're here for you; your youngsters will love attending just as much as you love dropping them off. The city of Boca Raton actually offers several different summer camps that all fit this description: you drop your campers off on your way to work by 7:30 AM and you pick them up on your way home at 5:30 PM. It couldn't be more convenient.
No matter what your supervisions needs are this summer, you'll want to be sure to check Boca Raton's city website for a full list of camps, times, ages and costs. Don't deprive your kids of a fun and active summer instead of a boring, lonely one spent at home playing video-games. You and your kids deserve to make the best of these precious few summer months, and there's no better way to do that than through Boca Raton's super fun and convenient summer camps.
