City's free summer day camps now full

With summer day camps now free at City of Memphis community centers, some 2,300 children and teens are now signed up to take part starting in early June. 

Summer Day CampMayor Jim Strickland and Councilman Edmund Ford Jr. announced back in February that the camp, which the City previously charged for, would be free this year. During the seven-week camp, kids and teens participate in enrichment activities, including arts and crafts, playground games, field trips, and health and fitness. 

This year’s theme is “Dream Builders,” where through service learning and play activities the campers develop a plan for success in one of their dreams – whether that’s athletics, academics, art, or learning to live a healthier lifestyle. For younger children, the camp will include a literacy component to support the goal of reaching third grade reading level.

The camp runs from June 12-July 27. Kids and teens who still want to attend may be offered a place on the waiting list. 

The Division of Parks and Neighborhoods offers the camp every year at the City’s 25 community centers. For more information, call 901-636-4203 or click here
