Due to COVID-19 and the closure of the East Lansing Hannah Community Center through July 12, 2020, Kids Camp is tentatively scheduled to begin on Monday, July 13, 2020 with limited registration available. The registration process has begun; however, due to limited space, all registrations will be processed through Julie Anne Jennings: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kids Camp is offered through the East Lansing Department of Parks, Recreation & Arts each summer. This popular summer camp features a different weekly theme and a number of activities, including arts and crafts, outdoor games/activities and more.
Parents can enjoy the flexibility of signing their child up for a couple of weeks or for the entire summer. Parents have the option of choosing which days they would like their child to attend with a minimum of four days per week. Child care is not offered on holidays.
A weekly newsletter to keep parents and families informed on what their child will be experiencing will be emailed the Wednesday prior to the week of care at camp.
Once the form and fee has been returned, parents will be given the complete enrollment packet. Enrollment will be accepted until July 6 as space is available.
Ratio of Caregivers to Children
The program adheres to the 1:10 state licensing ratio, including at least one staff member that has their current certification in CPR and First Aid. All staff members are required to obtain at least 16 hours of training related to school-age children. Program supervisors have had at least twelve semester hours of college credits in a child-related field. Most child care aides currently attend college and are pursuing degrees in education, child development or nursing.
