Demand for Summer Camps Rises with Nine-Month School Schedule

The City of Henderson's summer camps aim to give parents and families plenty of options for activities for their children.

With summer break just around the corner and the Clark County School District on a universal nine-month schedule, the Parks and Recreation Department has increased its offerings. Parents can choose from a variety of convenient locations and programs for youth and teens.

The Summer Kids Zone youth enrichment program is available from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, June 13-Aug. 26, at seven locations, including four of the city's recreation centers and three school satellite sites (if space is needed). Participation cost is $99 per child per week (ages 5-12), with sibling discounts available.

Kids Zone provides a safe environment and a variety of supervised activities for kids while their parents work. Age-appropriate games, arts and crafts, sports, and positive peer interaction form the basis of the program. Swimming and field trips may be included.

Summer Teen Kamp is available from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, June 13-Aug. 12, at Whitney Ranch Recreation Center, 1575 Galleria Dr. Participation is $110 per teen per week (ages 13-15), and sibling discounts are available. Teen Kamp offers mentoring and leadership activities tailored to meet teens' interests. Each week features a specific theme, such as outdoor adventure, sports, and graphic arts, and may include field trips.

Registration is accepted at any City of Henderson recreation center or online at cityofhenderson.com (type "summer camps" in the search box). Space may be limited at some locations, so early enrollment is recommended. Parents can reserve their child's place in any week (or weeks) in the program with a $20 deposit per family per week.
