Registration starts Saturday for Bibb Co. Summer camps

Starting Saturday, May 3, Bibb County parents can sign their children up for summer camp.

The Macon-Bibb County Parks & Recreation department holds a sign-up event from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. Saturday at Central City Park in Downtown Macon. There will be camp representatives there to answer any questions and help you get started.

The camps are all six weeks long, and cost $30 per week. Parents who pay in full, in advance, will receive a free week. That cost includes all materials, lunch, breakfast for children who are dropped off early, weekly swimming, local & regional outreach programs, and field trips.

The camps are for kids ages 6-15 and run from June 2 - July 11. Four different types of camps are available, and each day of camp is from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Early drop off & late pick up are offered, free of charge. Kids can be dropped off as early as 7:30 a.m., and picked up as late as 6 p.m. if needed.

Registration for camps lasts through May, and you can sign up at each location until the spaces fill up.
