Moore Opens Registration for Annual Summer Day Camp
Want your kids to have the absolutely best summer ever? Make plans now to attend the Oasis Summer Day Camp, a program operated by the City of Moore. The day camp begins June 1 and ends August 7.
“The camp is every Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.,” said Logan Crossland, recreational coordinator for the Moore Parks and Recreation Department. “The kids like this camp because they learn new things, play games, participate in arts and crafts and meet new friends.”
The program is for kids from aged 5 to 12, and they go on field trips every Thursday to enjoy activities such as bowling at Hey Day, movies at the Warren Theatre, the Oklahoma City Zoo, Science Museum Oklahoma and the Moore Public Library.
“Twice a week the kids go to The Station at Central Park Aquatic Center to go swimming,” Crossland said. “The absolutely love that.” Daily activities include recreation such as basketball, soccer, Frisbee and fun science experiments.
Kids are divided into age groups for some of the activities and they go together as a group on outings. Registration began in mid-February and continues through the spring. The cost varies for each week, depending on activities, but parents can also sign their children up for the entire summer. For information, call the Moore Parks & Recreation Department at 793-5090.
Snacks and drinks are included in the camp fee but kids need to bring a sack lunch daily and a swimsuit, towel and/ or change of clothing on the days they go swimming.
The City of Moore’s Oasis Summer Day Camp follows the guidelines set up by the American Camp Association. Drop off and pick up is at the Moore Community Center at 301 S. Howard Ave. –19SM
