Paradise Summer Day Camp 2017

Paradise Summer Day Camp is a fun and enjoyable way for children to spend their summer holi­days. All Camps will be running from the Rotary Paradise Youth and Community Centre (RPYCC) and Elizabeth Park Elementary School.

This summer we have organized activities that are fun as well as educational and social for all chil­dren. Each camp will have different outings every week including a swimming day, planned themed days, with games, crafts, presentations and more for the chil­dren to participate in. This year's amazing program will make it a summer your child/ren will never forget!

Summer Camp runs from Tuesday, June 27 to Friday, August 18, and is offered to families for the entire summer, or on a weekly basis.
