Programs will begin July 5 and are open to current Rockland District Middle School students. Out-of-area fifth- through eighth-grade students on a space-available basis. Camps will run at Rockland District Middle School five days a week through Aug. 12. Participants sign up for one week at a time. Campers may choose one week of camp or all six. Youth also have a choice of a morning or afternoon session. Morning camp will run from 9 a.m. to noon, and the afternoon session will begin at 1 p.m. and end at 4 p.m.
Campers are encouraged to pick a track — or focus area — for each week of camp based on their interests. Bobcat kids will play field games and sports. Fox kids will engage in creative art activities.
