Summer Camp Expo

By Michael Kurland

The Summer Camp Expo is a great way for families to come and see firsthand what the Takoma Park Recreation Department has to offer for the upcoming 2017 summer camp season. You will learn about all of the exciting activities campers will take part in for the summer.

Families will also have the opportunity to register for a variety of our camps for the summertime. Some of these camps include community favorites like Camp Takoma, Camp Recess, and Teens on the Move as well as some of our specialty camps, such as On Stage Footlight and Spotlight Camps, Visual Art Camp and Dance Camp. We are also adding a few new camps to our repertoire to include Wilderness Camps and a Cooking Camp for Tots.

“I thought the Camp Expo was great,” Sally Heaven said. “We were able to sign our two kids up for the camps of our choosing, and [we] got a really awesome discount on top of it.” During the Expo, families will receive a 20 percent discount off any camp(s) they register their child(ren) for (must be in line by 1 p.m. to get the discount). This discount gives many families the opportunity to get these camps at a significantly reduced price.

So join us for our 3rd Annual Summer Camp Expo on Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Takoma Park Community Center (7500 Maple Avenue).
