Registration for Lake Havasu summer kids programs is now open. Summer break for local Lake Havasu City schools will soon be in full force. If you don’t want your kids languishing in front of the TV all summer or bored and restless, focus their energetic spirit on more active pursuits, like the weekday youth summer camps, aquatic programs or sports activities being held through the Lake Havasu Aquatics and Recreation Department.
The Sunshine Kids Summer Camp is held Mondays through Fridays at Lake Havasu’s Jamaica (3437 Jamaica Blvd), Nautilus (1425 Patrician Dr) and Smoketree (2395 N Smoketree Ave) elementary schools. This camp is for kids entering grades K-4 in the 2012-2013 school year. For kids beginning grades 5-7, Camp Iwannago is also available Mondays through Fridays at Lake Havasu’s Thunderbolt Middle School (695 Thunderbolt Ave). The cost to attend the camps are $210 for the first child in a family and $165 for each additional family member. The camp fee includes lunch and a snack each day. In addition to being able to play with other Havasu kids, there are field trips to the Aquatic Center, the movie theater and Havasu Lanes.
To help Lake Havasu children from underprivileged families enjoy the same benefits that the summer youth camps give other kids, approximately 30 Lake Havasu restaurants are participating in the “Dollars for Kids” campaign. If you dine at any participating restaurant until the end of May and add just $1 to your total when paying, that dollar will be donated to the Recreation Services Youth Scholarship Fund. This fund helps financially struggling Lake Havasu families pay for after school care as well as summer youth programs such as camps and sports. Just ask your server if they participate in the “Dollars for Kids” campaign so you can give the next time you dine out.
For more information on registering for any of the Lake Havasu aquatics or recreation activities this summer as well as inquiring about financial assistance to help pay for the programs, please call (928) 453-8686. Registration for Lake Havasu summer kids programs is currently open. Remember, though, that these programs fill up fast. So, you need to hurry before your child misses out on a summer of fun in the sun in Lake Havasu City!
