Unfortunately due to a staffing shortage, for the first time in 40 years, we must put a capacity on the number of camper registrations per week. With that being said, all 7 weeks of K.I.D.S. Camp are already filled. You have the option to register for the waitlist in case a spot opens due to a cancellation of an enrolled camper.
Ashton Miller, Recreation Coordinator
Quakertown Borough sponsors a summer recreational camp for children ages 7—12 from June-August. The program is K.I.D.S.— Kids Involved Doing Something. K.I.D.S. Camp is held from Monday – Friday 9:00am – 3:30pm.
Residents will be charged $50.00 per week/per child, and non-residents will be charged $100.00 per week/per child. Registration will become available February 10, 2021
Please note that in observance of Independence Day, there will be no camp on Monday, July 5, 2021.
Before and After Camp Care -
The child must be enrolled in camp for the same days as they wish to be enrolled in Before and/or After Camp. Before camp takes place at the Skate Shelter and begins at 7:30am and carries into the start of the regular camp day of 9:00am. Campers may NOT be dropped off earlier than 7:30am. After camp takes place at the Skate Shelter and begins at the end of the camp day at 3:30pm and runs until 5:00pm. Campers MUST be picked up by 5:00pm. Before and after care are each $25.00 per week. Late pick ups will result in an automatic fee added to your account. If the fee is not paid by the next day, access to camp will not be granted. More than three occurrences of lateness may result in removal of the After Camp Program.
Registration is based on individual camp weeks, and will be open until noon the Thursday before camp starts. Payments for the fees can either be paid by credit card on QuakertownRec.com, or after registering online, can pay offline by cash or check at Borough Hall. There is a no refund policy for the K.I.D.S. Camp.
Financial assistance may be extended to families experiencing extreme temporary or long-term financial hardship based on income and family size. Applications can be downloaded from Quakertown.org/kidscamp. Financial Assistance is run on a case by case basis.
Each week K.I.D.S. Camp will offer field trips for the campers. Trips have a limited number of spots, and run on a first come first served basis. Trip registration will be available the week prior to the trip date and must be submitted and paid for the Friday prior to the trip.
