Register for Southern Pines Summer Camps
Southern Pines Recreation & Parks Department announced its listing of summer camp offerings in its summer brochure. “It’s not hard to believe that summer is just around the corner when I see the beautiful and fragrant spring blossoms. It reminds me that before you know it, school will be out and parents will be looking for summer camps and activities to keep children busy,” states Sue Gillis of Southern Pines Recreation Department. “I recently emailed registration forms to past participants, the Spring/Summer Recreation Brochure has been distributed and the response to our day camps has been brisk,” adds Gillis who coordinates day camps.
Summer Explorers full day camp for ages 5-7 and 8-13 begins its first of ten sessions on June 11. KinderFun Camp for ages 3-6 begins its first of six sessions on June 18. Engineer Explorations Camp has also added a second session which will feature innovative experiments for aspiring engineers. New for Summer 2012, Crafty Cuisine Cooking Camps for ages 6-9 and 10-14 and Painting Camps for ages 6-9 and 10-14. Last year’s popular camp, AllSports for ages 6-12 year olds will get underway beginning June 18. This energetic camp will focus on responsibility, respect, leadership, sportsmanship, time management, and the love of the game as campers practice and play a variety of sports. Tried and true favorite camps such as Jr. Cheerleading, Clay, Recycle Into Art Camp, Aqua Nuts, and many more can be found in our Spring/Summer 2012 Brochure and on line at www.southernpines.net/recreation.
“Register early as camps tend to fill rather quickly,” reminds Ms. Gillis. “If you are not planning on taking any major vacations this summer, and even if you are, our great day camps really do make summer extra special for your children.”
