Park your Kids at the Park


Boise Parks and Recreation is doing its part to keep your rugrats out of the house and out of trouble during summer's long and boring days. Playcamps for kids ages 6 to 12 are offered at five of Boise's neighborhood parks, including Cassia, Demeyer, Elm Grove, Ivywild and Winstead parks. Week-long playcamps start June 12 and continue throughout the summer until August 25, with weekly themes such as bugs, magic, patriotism, African safari, weird science and more. All-day playcamps from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ($56 per week, per child) and extended hours from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ($67 per week, per child) are available. Activities include art projects, crafts, swimming, field trips and more. Scholarships are available.
