For campers under age 6, early exposure is available at Adams Butzel Complex, Clemente, Heilmann, Young, and Williams recreation centers.
“We want people to know that Detroit’s recreation centers are full of activities that support and engage families across the city,” said Keith Flournoy, Deputy Director, Detroit Parks & Recreation. “By participating in summer camp with DPRD it provides an opportunity for kids to stay active while developing their life and social skills.”
The DPRD says children and youth should attend summer camp for five reasons: adventure, healthy fun, personal growth, new friendships and memories.
