Summer Explorers

For students ages 6-12 years

(Must be age 6 by the start of camp, no exceptions)

Grab your sunscreen and lace up those tennis shoes because you’re in for a fun summer at one of the City of Waukesha’s great parks! Our staff will provide inspirational, innovative, and fun activities that are sure to keep your child engaged, positive and enthusiastic all summer long. Whether your child likes to shoot hoops, knit, play dodgeball or make up their own activity, we’ve got something for them! Get ready to learn and experience new things and make some new friends along the way. Don’t forget your sense of adventure! Each week features a field trip or special event which you sure don’t want to miss (field trip/special event fees are included in program fee).

Your child must bring a non-perishable sack lunch, drink, snacks, sunscreen and a backpack to the program. Children are encouraged to wear closed toed shoes. Parents are required to sign their child (ren) in and out of our program. Once your child arrives at the playground, they are required to remain there until their scheduled ending time. Staff will need written permission in advance if you wish to have your child leave with someone else or walk home independently and when parents are planning to pick their child up early.

A list of special events and field trips will be available to all participants on their first day.
