The Day Camp program runs for six weeks every summer, providing hundreds of Greene County children with fun and activities. Running from mid-June until the last full week of July, excluding July 4, the Day Camp program is for all county children ages 5 to 15 years of age. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, campers enjoy activities at various county parks and pools across the county.
Children must pre-register before attending camp and are not required to attend camp each day. Open enrollment will be available each day up to the last day of camp. A kick-off registration will be held the Friday before the program initially begins from noon to 3 p.m., at each of the four main day camp locations.
Upon arrival and leaving each day, parents and/or guardians must sign each child in and out. Children are encouraged to be signed in by 10 a.m. A scheduled program will begin at approximately 10:10 a.m., with an activity such as, games, crafts, educational programs, or visiting the playground. At 11:45 a.m., children end their activity and prepare to be served a free hot lunch at noon, provided in partnership with the local school districts and the Pittsburgh Food Bank. A swimming activity will be held from 1 - 3 p.m., at each local pool with a discounted rate of $2.00 per person, excluding Ryerson Station State park. A free snack is also provided at end of day.
