WGRC Offers Programs for Kids in Summer and Fall
June 28, 2017 by Submitted | No Comments

West Geauga Recreational Council Day Camp gives campers a fun and safe environment where they can connect with children and staff, make new friends, share new experiences and keep their bodies and minds active. WGRC Day Camp is one of the few camps in the area that offers a daily or a weekly registration. Camp hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with before care available starting at 7 a.m. and after care available until 6 p.m.

Campers spend much time outside in the woods, on the soccer field and basketball court playing various team oriented games, on the playground and swimming in the pool. Daily activities also include art projects and individual activities such as coloring, card games and reading.

Weekly, on Tuesdays, the ice cream truck visits camp and on Fridays, there is a special fun lunch. Middle school campers go on a special field trip every Thursday, and for those back at camp, there are unique and themed activities at the campsite. Special visitors, including the Mobile Library Fun Bus, are a common occurrence at camp.

Learn to Swim sessions run July 3, July 17 and July 31 and run for two weeks each. Lessons follow the Red Cross requirements and are taught by American Red Cross certified instructors. Classes are available to students who are beginners at Level 1 to those as advanced as Level 6. Instructors will place the child at the appropriate level on the first day of the session. Swimmers must be fully potty trained to participate in lessons.

Fall soccer registration has started. The program is open to kids from U4 to U15. Discounted pricing is available for registrations received by June 30.

The program is led by OYSAN trained and certified directors and club coaches and everyone is welcome to play and learn the game, no matter their experience.

Fall soccer will start in August and run through mid-October and registration for levels U8 and above include a fall soccer tournament.
