Kids Zone Day Camp is an all-day camp for girls and boys ages 6-11Y.  Daily activities include sports games, crafts, drawing classes, special snacks, local area park trips, swimming, special guests, ice skating, bowling, and many other fun activities to keep the kids active.  Our trained Kids Zone counselors work to ensure that each child has a fun and rewarding camp experience. Campers will go on weekly field trips throughout the summer and will visit an aquatic facility once a week for an afternoon of water activities and fun in the sun.

Day Camp is registered by the week for the summer and spring break. Camps are also available over Thanksgiving and Winter breaks, but registered by the individual day to accommodate a more flexible schedule. Spaces for all Day Camps fill quickly; sign up for our email alerts to always be first on the list for the fun!  You can also join our Remind notifications if you text @KZMAC to 81010.
