      (Washington, DC) - The DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) will offer a Spring Break Camp for District youth ages 3 – 12 years old from Monday, April 1 – Friday, April 5, 2013, from 9 am to 5 pm.  Before will be provided from 8 am to 9 am and after care will be provided from 5 pm to 6 pm.  Registration is currently open for both District and non-District residents. Spring Break camp registration fee is $ 50 per child, with an additional $ 10 for before care and after care.  All fees are due at time of registration.


      DPR Spring Break Camp will operate in conjunction with the DC Public Schools (DCPS) spring break schedule.  Camp activities will  include sports, games, character education exercises, art and crafts, swimming and field trip activities.  DPR's goal is to plant the seeds of personal development and environmental responsibility in a fun, engaging recreation setting.  


      Breakfast and lunch will not be provided during Spring Break camp. Parents are reminded to send their child(ren) with a lunch and an afternoon snack every day.  Parents are also reminded of DPR's policy on food and snacks.  In an effort to be mindful of allergies, food items containing peanut or other nut products are not permitted at camp. Campers should wear comfortable clothes and sneakers and bring a reusable water bottle to camp. Participants in the 3 - 5 year old camp are asked to bring a blanket.
