Summer Camps - The Scoop

Parents…wondering how you’ll keep your kids occupied for the upcoming summer? Our Summer Camp programs are for you! The Recreation and Parks staff has given children the experience of a lifetime. Camp activities are designed to help each camper become more independent, enhance self-confidence, develop self-awareness and develop both mind and body in a fun and safe learning environment.
The overall theme of our camp is to provide the children with the positive aspects of recreation while at the same time allowing both the campers and the staff the opportunity to interact and learn from each other. We are offering 17 new “Fun Camps”, Sports Camps and Therapeutic Camps available for children ranging in ages 3 to 17. Summer Camps begin the week of June 17 and run for one week sessions through August 15.

Donate so others may play...

This year you have an opportunity to contribute to the St. Mary's County Recreation Scholarship Fund.  This fund was created 18 years ago through an annual golf tournament held in remembrance of Scott Verbic to provide opportunities for those children in need of assistance to participate in recreation programs. 

Today we have created the G.O.L.F (Giving Opportunities to Local Families) Program that provides opportunities for individuals and families to contribute to the Scholarship Fund.  For only $25, you or your family can place your name among fellow donors on a featured plaque recognizing your contribution. The plaque will be displayed for all to see at the Main Office of Recreation & Parks.

All donations are tax-deductible.  Donate Today.
