Specialty Camps 2014

Leisure Services offers two summer camp programs that are a unique, innovative and recreational alternative to daycare. Day Camp runs the entire length of the Putnam County Schools summer break while Specialty Camps are only one week long.  Both camp programs educate kids on a variety of positive, socially appropriate leisure pursuits.  Our counselors lead a number of summer activities that are second to none.  Campers will have the opportunity to identify their recreational interests and to HAVE FUN!  We believe decision making, independence and a sense of personal identity and community are essential to their success as adults.  We hope to encourage each child’s talents and celebrate their uniqueness.  Whether joining our Day Camps, Specialty Camps or both, your child is sure to have one of the best summers of their lives!
