Preschool/Youth Summer Camp Information
Welcome to the City of Dublin Parks & Recreation Department, and thank you for your interest in the 2019 Preschool and Youth summer camp season.
As a nationally accredited agency through the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA), you are now part of an organization that strongly believes in the need and benefit of recreation services.
While we are currently busy planning an amazing summer camp experience for your children, we wanted to begin the communication process to provide the necessary information to help you determine your child’s summer break plans. We understand this can be a tedious experience, so we want to simplify the process as much as we can for you.
Since our camps ended in 2018, we have continued to research and build upon a stair-step approach to our camps, from our youngest age group to our tweens. Our focus is on providing an age-appropriate, FUN camp experience for your child, developmentally specific to their needs with positive, peer connections that build respect and social skills along with fine and gross motor development. We are so excited to continue these summer camp experiences in 2019!
All Preschool/Youth Summer Camp Information will be posted on our Camps Webpage. Please review each section on our Camps Webpage and let us know if you have any questions prior to the start of registration. We suggest that patrons bookmark this page to keep up-to-date on any new information for our camps.
