City offers summer camps for kids

Summer camp season is nearly upon us and the City of Renton has created a whole slew of ways for kids to fight boredom this summer.

Day camps are for kids ages 6 to 10 years old who have completed kindergarten. They host a range of activities from games, swimming, songs, field trips, arts and crafts and regular trips to the Henry Moses Aquatic Center.

Summer Day Camp is featured at three locations: the Highlands Neighborhood Center, the North Highlands Neighborhood Center and the Renton Community Center.

The City of Renton also offers a Teen Camp for those age 11 to 14, a Mini Camp for those age 4 to 6 and an Adventure Camp for those 7 to 12.
