Cary, NC - Cary residents can register beginning February 4 for Cary’s School’s Out 2019 programming which includes full day and half day summer camps, as well as workshops, classes, and clinics for youth and teens in traditional and year-round schools; non-residents can register beginning February 18. Pick up the School’s Out 2019 guide at any Town recreation and cultural arts staffed facility, Cary Town Hall, public library in Cary or view it online at www.townofcary.org/programs. New programming this year throughout Cary includes a full-day visual arts camp at Mills Park Elementary Schools, a half-day track & field camp at Herbert C. Young Community Center and half-day Electronic Game Design themed camps at Middle Creek Community Center. Camp favorites like visual and performing arts, culinary, history and heritage, nature, recreation and sports camps round out the summer offerings.

Look under the Summer Day Camps heading for full week, full day care, where campers can enjoy arts and crafts, sports, games, swimming, tennis, and weekly field trips. Check out the Half Day Camp section for camps that run from 9 a.m.-noon or 1-4 p.m.—a perfect fit for kids who can join us for shorter timeframes. Did you know you can pair a morning camp with an afternoon camp and use lunch supervision to bridge the time between the two, making a full day camp? Use the camp builder worksheet in the front of the guide to plan your best summer yet! And, don’t forget to check out the Workshops, Classes & Clinics section where you can find shorter instruction time in the areas of visual arts, performing arts, and sports.

Fees vary depending on program type and duration; scholarships are available for qualified participants and payment plans are available for some camps.

The Town releases its School’s Out summer camp guide each winter, and this is in addition to its full program, teen, and senior guides, all of which are published three times annually: fall, winter/spring and summer. For ways to play in Cary, visit the Recreation and Enjoyment section at www.townofcary.org or call (919) 469-4061. For more fun in Cary, follow the Town on Twitter @TOC_Fun.
