Registration is now open for summer camp at all parks in District 2

Miami-Dade County Commissioner Jean Monestime, District 2, announced today a reduction in summer camp fees at Oak Grove Park, 690 NE 159 St. in Miami.  Now, all Miami-Dade Parks summer camps in District 2 are $40 per week. Previously the fee for Oak Grove Park was $70 per week.

Registration is now open for Summer Camps at all Miami-Dade Parks.

Parents are urged to enroll their children at one of the exciting 'Fit to Play, Green It Up' Summer Camps offered by the Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department. Conveniently located at 38 parks throughout the County from June 11-August 17, 2012, camps are open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday-Friday, and offer 7:30 a.m. early drop-offs and 6:00 p.m. late pick-up options, and are managed by recreation professionals.

Summer camps feature exciting field trips to sites such as Zoo Miami, Crandon Park Visitors and Nature Center, Deering Estate at Cutler, and Pelican Island. Campers will also enjoy the annual end-of-summer bash which includes: games, sports competitions and lunch, July 24-27 at the Tropical Park Equestrian Center.
