Summer Playground

Play Where You Stay

Play Where You Stay is a virtual way to bring Summer Playground to you! Our goal is to keep kids connected to camp, maintain social interaction with school and neighborhood friends and HAVE FUN! 

We will utilize various media options to conduct camp. Zoom meetings will be held twice daily with kids and staff, real time interactions such as craft projects, games, demonstrations and fitness activities will be held weekly, links to approved events will be provided as part of the daily scheduling and live performances will be conducted each week.

TIME: Camp will run Monday - Thursday from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., with a break from 12 p.m. - 1 p.m. for lunch.

AGES: This camp is designed for children ages 6-12 years old.

START/ENDS: Monday, June 29 to Thursday, August 6, 2020.

COST: $40 for Sterling Heights Resident / $52 for non-residents.

What is included in the fee?

We will provide daily interaction with qualified staff members offering guidance with activities and opportunities to access age appropriate camp activities.  In addition, the registration fee will cover a weekly kit containing necessary supplies for the completion of planned craft activities and handouts.  A small amount of household items may need to be provided by the participant, but will be given in advance of the camp week (examples:  water bottle, empty toilet paper roll).

How will I pick up my weekly supplies?

Supplies will be available for pick up the Friday before the start of each camp week at the Sterling Heights Community Center located at 40250 Dodge Park between the hours of 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. during the Utica Community Schools “Meet Up and Eat Up” food service program.
