Summer Camp in Full Swing at Carver Recreation Center

This summer the Jefferson School City Center’s Carver Rec is hosting a pre-teen camp for youth in grades 4th through 6th grade. The camp lasts from June 16 through July 25 and registration is open and ongoing until the camp reaches capacity.

“Parks and Rec offers a comprehensive summer camp program where campers participate in experiential education through a variety of clubs ( Green Adventure Project, PB & J Fund, City School Yard Garden, African American Heritage Center, Light House, Lewis & Clark Exploratory Center, Zumba, fencing, tennis, basketball, swim lessons etc.) and fun field trips,” explained Erica Goode, City of Charlottesville Recreation Program Manager, adding that “most importantly camp is fun.”

The camp meets daily from 9am-4pm for the six week period. The camp also offers a nutritional breakfast and lunch to campers. More information can be found on the website or by calling the information line at 434-970-3260.
