Cary, NC - Cary residents can register beginning February 4 at 9 a.m. for Cary’s School’s Out 2020 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; nonresidents can register beginning February 18. All camp, program, and class registration will be through myCary, the new registration system that replaces EZ-Reg.

School’s Out 2020 guides are available at any Town recreation and cultural arts staffed facility, Cary Town Hall, and public library in Cary, or online at townofcary.org/programs.

New programming this year includes a full week, full day camp at Middle Creek Community Center, half day video game camps at Page-Walker Arts & History Center, half day STEM sports camps at Herbert C. Young Community Center, and half day spy and games camps at Mills Park Elementary School. Camp favorites like visual and performing arts, culinary, history and heritage, nature, recreation and sports camps round out the summer offerings.

Look in the Full Day Camp section, under the Summer Day Camps, for full week, full day care where campers can enjoy arts and crafts, sports, games, swimming, tennis, and weekly field trips. The Half Day Camp section features camps running from 9 a.m.-noon or 1-4 p.m. — a perfect fit for kids attending for shorter timeframes. Registrants 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. Camp staff will supervise the lunch hour, then get your camper to their next camp (use the camp builder worksheet in the front of the guide to help plan).

The guide also includes non-camp offerings in the areas of visual arts, performing arts, and sports in the Workshops, Classes & Clinics section.

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. 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.
