Kids can participate in daily activities such as sports, games, crafts, and even weekly field trips. Lunch will also be provided.

Camps will be held in two sessions, the first from June 13 through August 5 at the California and Newburg community centers.

Parents can drop their kids off no earlier than 8 a.m. each day, and pick them up no later than 6 p.m.

There's a one-time registration fee of $20 and a weekly $60 fee per child.

According to Louisville Parks and Rec and depending on staffing, each camp can host between 30 and 50 participants.
