Helena's Parks and Recreation Department partnering with the non-profit Kay McKenna Youth Foundation.
We provide affordable summer camps for kids ages 6-7 and 8-9. This summer, both age groups will be at Memorial Park. Campers will be at the same park, but the age groups participate in different activities with different counselors. Each week of camp has a different theme - no two weeks of camp are the same! Please read the camp descriptions every week to know what your child needs - like a swimsuit or closed toe shoes.
Monday - Thursday
June 12th - August 10th
7:45am - 3:00pm
Memorial Park: 1005 Last Chance Gulch
We meet every day at the Memorial Park Cottage, next to the playground equipment and across from the baseball field.
We believe Helena's youth should have access to a safe, creative and entertaining summer camp where they can enjoy the recreational opportunities our community has to offer.
Camp is free!

Free Lunch and Snacks:
Our camp partners with the USDA Summer Meal Program to provide free lunch for our campers. This summer meal program is also available to all Helena children under the age of 18. Children do not have to be registered to Kay's Kids to participate in the free summer meal program. To learn about the program and locations, visit their website HERE.
Campers are provided with a morning snack and afternoon snack. Please talk to us if you are interested in donating a snack for the day! We love goldfish and fruit snacks from Costco. Children have access to water and parents hare required to provide their child with a water bottle every day of camp.
