Summer Explorers

Youth Development Summer Day Camp Opportunities 2021


For Students ages 6 -12

(must be age 6 by start of camp, no exceptions)

Grab your sunscreen and lace up your tennis shoes because your summer fun will begin at one of the City of Waukesha’s great parks!  Let our staff engage your child in fun, innovative games, crafts and friends all summer long.  Day campers will enjoy crafts, games, making new friends and trying new activities! This is an outdoor day camp, during inclement weather we will utilize a park shelter/open air shelter.   All participants must be potty trained and able to use the restroom independently.
