Royal Hill, the Centers and Programs Manager for Lafayette Parks & Recreation stopped by the show this morning to talk about summer camp registration.

The 2019 Summer Enrichment Program registration will be on May 17 and May 24 from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm at 500 Girard Park Drive.

The program is for children 5 to 14 years of age. The enrichment program will be held on June 10th through July 26th, with a holiday break from July 1st through 5th.

For a minimal fee, the program offers supervised daytime play and activities for youths during a designated summer period. The registration fee is $250.00 for the standard program of 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. An early drop off option: 7:15 am – 9:00 am and a late pick up option: 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm are available at an additional cost of $125.00 for each option.

Camp participants are divided by age and gender, and the ratio is one adult supervisor for every 10 children. There are numerous indoor activities for children to participate in such as ping pong, table hockey, and board games. In addition to playground activities, special events and field trips (including the library, skating, bowling, tennis, swimming, restaurants, etc.) will be an option. All these activities are available for a small additional fee and are limited to a first-come, first served basis. Field Trips are not included in the registration fee and have to be paid for separately. Children will be bused to a nearby school for lunch which is provided by the Lafayette Parish School System, but camp participants may bring their own lunch and eat it at their camp site. Snacks are also served daily. 

Program Sites for 2019 are: Comeaux Recreation Center, Dupuis Recreation Center, Robicheaux Recreation Center and Girard Recreation Center.
