Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Registration has begun for the City of Columbia Parks and Recreation's 2010 summer camps.
The full-day camps are for 6 to 14-year-olds. They'll take place from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
A teen camp is offered at Katheryn M. Bellfield Booker Washington Heights Cultural Arts Center for 13- to 16-year-olds.
Summer day camp sizes are limited in order to keep counselor-to-camper ratios small. The city says the knowledgeable staff, variety of activities, and small size makes these camps very popular, so parents are encouraged to register children early. Related link: Flyer Detailing Columbia Summer Camps
Registration is now being accepted at all participating locations and at the Parks and Recreation administration office, located at 1932 Calhoun Street.
Summer camps begin June 1. The cost is $45 per week per child.
