Those looking for a way to get the kids out of the house this summer are being invited to consider Huntsville Parks & Recreation summer camps.

Led by highly trained staff, the city says the camps offer a blend of educational and recreational activities. They provide children with more than just a place to spend their days through opportunities for growth, learning, friendship-building and exploration of new interests.

“We’ve had overwhelming community interest in our camp offerings,” said Parks & Recreation Director James Gossett in a statement. “We’re proud to offer something truly unique and affordable that also provides educational and physical fitness opportunities for students during summer months.”

Huntsville City School students in grades 1-6 are eligible for full-day camps, which run from Monday, June 3, to Friday, July 27.

Full-day camps will be at Cavalry Hills, Dr. Richard Showers, Sr., Fern Bell and Mark Russell recreation centers.
