Palmyra Area Recreation & Parks Commission



It is with a heavy heart and a great deal of sadness that after consulting with the NRPA, PRPS, ACA, CDC, WHO web-sites and after discussing this matter with Superintendent Kepler as well as our insurance carrier, we have no choice but to cancel our Summer Day Camp, this year.  As a result, we do not believe we will be able to create an enjoyable environment for your child and cannot guarantee their health, wellbeing or safety. With this in mind, we cannot allow our Summer Day Camp to take place, this year.

Since we are cancelling the PARPC Summer Day Camp, all monies paid to date including the family registration fee and transportation fees will be reimbursed to you within the next few weeks but no later than June 15th.

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing your children at next summer’s day camp.

If there is one experience that’s sure to build memories, It’s PARPC’s 2020 Summer Camp!

By connecting to the interests of our campers, by providing an environment that’s nurturing, supportive and inclusive, and by making fun [and safety] the goal of every activity, PARPC offers children in completed grades K thru 8th a special place that makes it all happen and then some.

Campers participate in a whole host of age appropriate happenings such as sports, games, crafts and learning activities that boost self-esteem, inspire self-expression, facilitate friendships and build a sense of community.

Summer Camp is an integral part of the Palmyra Area Recreation and Parks Commission. In fact, it’s one of the many jewels in our programming, a status that speaks to the staff we choose for their ability to be nurturing, positive role models for our campers. And our caring doesn’t stop with the kids. We engage parents, keeping them up to date on camp fun thru our on-site message board, weekly newsletters and photos.

PARPC Summer Camp provides children with fun memories and friendships that last a lifetime. It’s the reason so many of our campers come back year after year.  Join us!

Dates: Monday through Friday, June 8th  thru August 14, 2020.  Total of 10 weeks and the last week of August 10-14th is optional.  (Nine week commitment of June 8 through August 7th.)

Location: Lingle Elementary

Hours: 6:30 am to 6:00 pm: You or your designated person must sign in child in and out daily. Photo ID may need to be shown until staff becomes familiar with parents / children. Please explain this procedure to designated pick-up people.

  • 6:30 am to 6 pm: It is highly recommended that your child be dropped off by 9:00 am as this begins the structured, organized portion of the camp day.
  • If you drop off after 9 am you will be required to take your camper to the appropriate age group location.  Call the camp phone at 343-4049 regarding drop-off time change so you know where your child needs to be dropped off.
  • If you are picking up before 3:00 pm, you will need to go to the location of the group by calling the camp phone 343-4049 to discuss a pick up time change and pick up location with the proper age group.
  • Absence: If your child is scheduled to be at camp and will not be attending due to illness or other reasons, please call the camp phone, 343-4049, (not PARPC office) to inform camp staff.
