SUMMER CAMP

Get ready for another amazing year of Southside Camp! Our campers will be thrilled that Clair Piczak, Mrs. Key, and Jeff Carrus will be back again this year to lead our camp! This year will be another amazing experience available only to Southside residents. Campers must be season pass holders of the Southside Place Parks Department. If your family is not yet a season pass holder or if you have any other questions about camp, please contact the Parks and Rec Director Andrew Deavers.

We offer Pre-Chool (Small Room) camp for 4-6 year olds and a Big Room camp for those 6 years and up. Parents can place their 6 or 7 year old children in the Big Room and request a little extra attention to ensure a smooth transition from the Small Room. 

Highlights:

  • All campers must have a Southside Place Season Pass and be in good standing.
  • Children under the age of 10 years must be signed out of camp by a guardian or an adult on parent’s approved list and children that leave camp for any reason are considered checked out of camp.
  • But your camp t-shirt online when you register.
  • Campers provide their own lunch, except on Friday’s, when they may buy lunch at an additional cost.
