BridgeWays Coosa County has registration open for its Summer Day Camp program, offering convenient day camp on the days that Central Coosa does not have summer learning. Youth can come for a day, sporadic days, or every day – whatever is needed. The program is flexible and tries to work around what the parent/guardian and child need. Need earlier drop-off and/or later pick-up times? Ask and they may be able to accommodate your needs. Breakfast, lunch, snacks, and all activities are included in our prices. We’ll go on one field trip each week beginning in July, and that is also covered in the cost. Register today and pay the once-a-summer $30 deposit to reserve your child’s spot. Open for young people in grade PK-5. Session days are 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. All-day camps are $85 per week per child or $19 per day per child, with rates varying for shorter camp weeks. Register online at bridgewayscoosa.campbrainregistration.com. For more details contact Regional Director Lynn Anne Castleberry at 813-363-0495 or LynnAnne.Castleberry@BridgeWaysAL.org, or see the Coosa BridgeWays Facebook group for more info.
