Do you remember the summer your parents sent you to camp? Do you remember shooting a bow and arrow, paddling a canoe, the raccoons in the trash can, hiking in the woods, making a lanyard, catching a fish, swimming in the lake and eating s’mores around the campfire?
Of course, you remember! Summers at camp are unforgettable. Now you can send your child to a day camp that has been making special memories for children since 1977... the Jacomo Day Camp.Your child can come for one week of fun or for all nine weeks. It’s a great alternative to conventional day care programs or baby-sitters... and older kids think camp is a cool way to make friends.
Give your kids a summer they’ll never forget... at Jackson County Parks & Recreation’s Jacomo Day Camp.
