Join us for an exciting 2017 camp season!
Registration for City Residents opens April 3, 2017
Registration open for everyone begins May 1, 2017
From talent shows to tie-dying and relay races to sports, our camps give children a chance to play, laugh, learn and grow. The City of Duluth Parks and Recreation Department offers high quality summer camps for tots to teens, with a wide range of enriching experiences outdoors and close to home. We provide one of the most respected camp programs in the area.
Our Camp Philosophy
We’re committed to providing a variety of safe, active learning opportunities that promote teamwork, friendship and fun. Through individual successes and group challenges, campers develop a stronger sense of self-confidence, while creating memories that last a lifetime.
We’re proud to continue the long-standing tradition of offering an exceptional summer camp experience to the youth in our area. In addition, we provide a wide array of camp programs, flexible full-day or half-day options, a professional, well-trained staff and a safe and nurturing environment — all at an affordable price. We offer a proven program that keeps campers coming back year after year and looking forward to a new experience every day.
Our Commitment to Staffing
Our exceptional staff is well-trained and dedicated to providing a safe, caring and nurturing environment for your child. We provide extensive staff training and select only the most qualified and committed individuals for our team.
Our commitment is simple and twofold:
- To offer an enjoyable and nurturing camp experience to every camper.
- To maintain your trust that when your children are in our care, they will be safe and respected.
What to Expect on the First Day
On the first day of each camp session, we will place your child in an assigned group. The staff forms the groups by age and tries to have an equal number of boys and girls. Registration sometimes results in groups composed of all girls or all boys. Friendship requests will not be available. Children in the same camp will have the opportunity to hang out with their friends in other groups throughout the day. Based on enrollment, your child’s group and counselor may change with the start of a new session. In May, families will receive a Camp Parent Handbook and packet with detailed information on your selected camp(s).
