County parks announce summer camp program

The Anoka County Parks and Recreation Department announces its 2013 summer day camp schedule.

This summer the parks department is offering brand new day camps for children pre-K through seventh grade – and it also has camps for grandparents.

Small groups allow staff to give individual attention to each child.

Hands-on activities and great natural resources let the kids really explore the natural world around them.

Day camps are held in Anoka County parks, with ecologically diverse forest, meadow and wetland habitats.

The naturalists are all college graduates and professional educators who have spent years working with kids in the outdoors.

They are also certified in first aid, CPR and AED.
