WCPARC Day Camps & Playground Program

Summer Day Camp - Independence Lake

Washtenaw County Parks is committed to offering various summer programming opportunities to suit every child, timing, budget, and location throughout the County.  We aim to educate the whole child through varied activities, weekly themes, and new experiences. As a result, each camper encounters an environment that helps build self-esteem, emotional and social development, and an opportunity to try new things and expand their comfort zone.  Moreover, our summer programs allow campers to unplug from technology and dive in to essential hands-on learning.

Ranging from 7 to 10-week programs, our camps are structured to ensure your child has an unforgettable summer filled with lots of memories and fresh air.  Each camp location offers its own unique advantages.  Rolling Hills campers will visit the water park three times each week, while Meri Lou Murray Recreation Center campers go on two field trips each week.  Campers at Independence Lake partake in paddle boats and lakefront activities.

While all of our camps and programs have their own variation of programming, the core of each camp remains the same: providing a safe, fun, and nurturing environment for your child to learn and grow.

In addition to these core values, your camper will surely notice the FUN aspect of camp.  Making new friends, singing silly songs, and other endless opportunities to laugh and play are the perfect recipe for an unforgettable summer program experience for your child and peace of mind for you.

Join us for Summer Camp or the Playground Program this summer!  

Registration begins on March 1 and is available to children who have completed kindergarten through 11 years old.
