Chesterfield Summer Camps will keep your kids active and having fun this summer! Each week your child will have the opportunity to swim and participate in a wide variety of games, arts and crafts, and field trips. Camps will be located at Central Park and the campers will be able to cool off at the Chesterfield Aquatic Center daily. Everyday at camp your child will be engaged, safe and having fun! Camps are for ages 5-12. Sign up for one week or all six! Fees are $150 per week for Chesterfield residents and $190 per week for non-residents (one week is pro-rated). Before and after care are offered for an additional fee begining at 7 a.m. and ending at 6 p.m.
Here are each week's activities:
Art Fair at Laumeier is a nationally acclaimed fine art and craft fair at Laumeier Sculpture Park featuring food and beverage vendors, hands-on art activities for kids, live music and more. Now in its 33rd year, the fair is a Mother's Day Weekend tradition in St. Louis.
From Saturday morning cartoons to pop adaptations, opera can be fun for kids and adults alike. Enjoy a lively, 45-minute concert of recognizable hits from favorite operas, followed by cupcakes and hands-on opera-inspired crafts. The Cupcake Concert is ideal for ages 5-12, or for anyone embracing their inner child!
It's Monster Machines Day at Des Peres Park! See a police car, bulldozer, fire truck and much more up close during this hands-on, free event. Kids can climb in and look around and let their imagination take them on a ride. Kids can also visit the bicycle obstacle course and go for a ride to test their skills. Kids are encouraged to bring their own bikes.
Grab a rod and reel and bring your kids to Des Peres Park for the Youth Fishing Derby. Pre-registration is required. Kids ages 3-12 can participate in morning fishing, the Longest Fish Contest, and most fish caught in each age division. Bring your own fishing pole and bait.
Camp Lakewood Open Houses are designed to give you and your children or teens the opportunity to meet the camp directors, ask questions and see the beautiful property. You'll get a tour of the camp, be able to speak with camp staff and be reassured that your camper will have the experience of a lifetime at YMCA Camp Lakewood.
Parents call it a break from the kids, and kids call it a break from parents, so its a win-win for all! During Parents' Survival Night you can spend some adult time seeing a movie or catching up with friends, while your kids get quality "kid time" in a safe, familiar, and fun place with trained instructors who lead them through music, games and fun LEGO, DUPLO and LEGO Junior building activities.
Featuring real puppets created by the Henson Creature Shop, Splash and Bubbles: Dive In, Lend a Fin! takes children on an underwater adventure to learn about the ocean and what they can do to help protect it.
