It’s five days of non-stop fun! Take your child to a neighborhood camp so they can stay connected with friends. A 9-week camp is held Monday-Friday, May 31-July 29 at both Colvin and Evergreen. An 8-week camp is held Monday-Friday, May 31-July 22 at Lynette Woodard. Due to the holiday, camp will not be held Monday, July 4.

Summer Activity Camp is licensed by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and is open to children ages 6-13.

On-Site Activities

With the assistance of many on-site presentations from community partners, campers will experience a variety of life-long learning opportunities such as cooking along with mentoring on financial education, gang awareness and reading. Of course the summer wouldn’t be complete without a few field trips, swimming, games, crafts, movies and other fun recreational activities.

Field Trips

Off-site field trips are scheduled at various locations throughout Wichita. Past trips have included Watson Park, the Palace Theatre, Carousel Skate Center, All Star Adventures, Seneca Bowl and swimming at the Wichita Public Pools.
