The City of North Port has expanded its summer camp options for families and is proud to offer two new camps for teens. The City’s Parks & Recreation Division will host a Teen Xtreme Camp, a Camp CSI in conjunction with the North Port Police Department, and its annual GMAC Summer Camp program this summer.
The Teen Xtreme Camp is for students entering sixth grade through eighth grade. The camp will be from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from June 4 through August 10 at the Morgan Family Community Center, 6207 W. Price Blvd. This teen camp will combine the fun of day camp with more challenging programs and activities for older kids. Campers will enjoy two field trips per week. The cost is $85 per week.
The Parks & Recreation Division has also partnered with the North Port Police Department to offer a CSI camp for students entering grades sixth through eighth. Identical camps will be offered from 8 a.m. to noon on June 11-15 and July 23-27 at the North Port Police Department, 4980 City Hall Blvd. The program incorporates camper’s sleuth skills and is taught by real crime scene investigators. Students will learn both physical and chemical forensic science techniques and how to solve the most mystifying cases. Camp CSI is structured to highlight the most importance of collaboration while building confidence. The cost is $90 per week.
The City’s annual GMAC Summer Camp offers an exciting full day of programs that are designed to build character and self esteem in both small and large group settings. The camp will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on June 4 through August 10 at the George Mullen Activity Center. The camp is for students in grades first through fifth. The cost is $70 per week. Parents looking for additional hours can enroll their children in the weekly extended care for an additional fee.
