Spring break is just around the corner and summer will be here before you know it. What will you do to keep your school-age children active, outdoors and engaged in learning over summer break? Cleveland Metroparks Outdoor Experiences Division offers more than three dozen summer day camps for children ages 3 to 16 at convenient locations throughout the Park District from June 17 through August 12.
Each camp is an adventure in outdoor fun, whether it's hiking in the woods, birding, exploring a creek, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, fishing, biking, or catching bugs. Plus, enjoy traditional camp activities including stories, games, crafts, making new friends and creating memories.
Camps are targeted to a variety of age groups and are offered at various dates and times. Children of all ages - from pre-schoolers to high school students - will explore the outdoors, learn more about nature and experience different types of outdoor recreation.
For instance, campers ages 12 to 15 can spend four days at West Creek Reservation attending Biology Camp for Teens and pre-schoolers can discover nature through stories, games, crafts and group activities at North Chagrin Reservation. For more information about these and a variety of other age appropriate summer camps visit clevelandmetroparks.com.
Registration is required for all camps and is available only online at clevelandmetroparks.com. Registration begins Tuesday, April 15 at 9:30 a.m. for Cuyahoga County and Hinckley Township residents and Tuesday, April 22 at 9:30 a.m. for residents of other counties. Space is limited, so register early to avoid being closed out.
