On Friday, March 29, 2019, the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department will begin accepting registration forms for summer camp. Camp offerings this year include sports camps, as well as camps focused around the concepts of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM), cooking, art, writing, theatre, and more. Activities in these areas will take place in the mornings, and afternoons will be filled with games, field trips, special guests, and swimming. Camp runs 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily; however, supervised open play is available at no extra cost for families to drop off children as early as 7:30 a.m. and pick up as late as 5:30 p.m.

New this year - we are excited to offer two different tracks for each week of summer camp. Parents will have the opportunity to choose which track their child participates in each week. Not every child is the same, so why should our camp options be? We hope the different track options provide campers with a more personal experience and allow them to do activities they truly enjoy.

Registration forms available at www.icgov.org/camps

Paper copies of registration forms available at:

  • Robert A. Lee Recreation Center, 220 S. Gilbert St. 
  • Mercer Park Aquatic Center, 2701 Bradford Dr.
