Kids Camp
Kids Day Camp programs are an exciting part of your child’s summer experience. This camp is for ages 6-11.  Ward Recreation Center camp includes sports, games, arts and crafts, cooking, gardening, fishing, community projects and so much more! Each week is themed for additional fun activities. We have weekly field trips that include locations such as the aquatic center, the gymnastic center, pool, skating, bowling, and movies. (Field trip fees are not included in registration fees) We encourage positive play, creativity, friendships, and fitness. Having fun is where it all starts at Ward Recreation Center. Our goal is to create magical memories with your child during their summer break!

(A big thank you to the West Cobb Kiwanis Club for supporting our Summer Day Camp program as adopted grandparents. They spend time at our camp during summer teaching us new things and spoiling the kids just a bit!)

Teen Camp
Teen Camp is a uniquely designed camp for teenagers from ages 12-15. Camp is limited to 12 teenagers per week. This camp is designed to the needs of a teenager. All 12 teen campers gather on Monday of each week and plan their activities for the week based on the likes of the group. Led by a fantastic teacher as their Teen Camp Director, they venture out on field trips each week to places such as Skyzone, Sparkles, the movies, Six Flags, White Water, and even the mall. (Field trip fees are not included in registration price) This group has a cooking day each week where they plan a menu, gather the items and prepare their meal. It’s a great way for teens to learn their way around the kitchen and to try new things. Our teens play hard. They can often be found on the trails in the park, on the softball field in a game or even in an intense game of cards. The bottom line for this camp is they become fast friends and learn to forge their differences to make for a FANTASTIC and FUN summer. Many of these teens that meet in camp have stayed friends well past college.
