Florida Hospital Flagler is donating $500 to Palm Coast’s Summer Camp Program. The money will provide camp scholarships for those in need.
“When parents find out that their children have qualified for the scholarship, they are just so thankful,” said Luanne Santangelo, Palm Coast director of parks and recreation.
The city’s summer camp program is in two groups: Fit n’ Fun Camp is for children who have just completed Kindergarten through fifth grade. Teen Adventure Camp is for those who have just completed grades six through nine.
Children in the Fit n’ Fun Camp, located at the Palm Coast Community Center, at 305 Palm Coast Parkway NE, participate in a variety of recreational games, themed activities, swim time at the Frieda Zamba Swimming Pool, arts and crafts and guest presentations. The camp, open now, runs through Friday, August 12th every Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Early drop off and late pick up options are available. The fee of $75 per week includes lunch, snacks, camp t-shirt and two pool days.
Campers at the Teen Adventure Camp, at James Holland Park, 18 Florida Park Drive, participate in sports, hiking, kayaking, paintball, recreational games, swim time at the Frieda Zamba Swimming Pool, arts and crafts, teambuilding and more. Fees are $100 for each week , which include one adventure field trip, lunch, snacks, two pool days and a camp t-shirt.
Campers can attend as many weeks as they like. Additionally, both groups can go on field trips, such as Zoom Air Ziplining at the Central Florida Zoo, cruising on the Black Rave Pirate Ship in St. Augustine, and visiting the Museum of Arts & Science in Daytona Beach.
Registration for both camps is available at the Palm Coast Community Center, 305 Palm Coast Parkway NE, or the Frieda Zamba Swimming Pool at 339 Parkview Drive during regular business hours. For more information, log onto the city’s website or call the Parks & Recreation Department at 386/986-2323.
