SUMMER AT SOUTHSIDE PLACE
Summer Camp & Swim Team Registration Open
Calling Southside kids of all ages – Registration for the Southside All-Stars Swim Team and Southside Summer Camp is now available!
Camp Directors Jeff Carrus, Gabriela Olivero and Allison Akers, along with their great team of counselors, many of whom attended the camp as kids themselves, are back and excited to lead Southside’s kids in tons of fun activities each day during the June and July sessions. Our younger campers can expect to have plenty of fun with art projects, story time, park visits, dress up parties, tons of play-time with their friends and more. Our older campers can expect high-energy activities and fast-paced games like scooter races, foosball, cool art projects, and visits to the park, pool, and tennis courts. As always, we’re planning a handful of fun, special activities for our campers, which historically have included bobbing for donuts on a string, water slide and dunk tank day, a visit from the Kona Ice truck, fun Friday lunches and everyone’s favorite dodgeball game, Survival!
All-Stars Swim Team
The Southside All-Stars Swim Team is back and sure to be better than ever. Led by Sydney Marvin, a veteran All-Stars team member and coach of 11 summers, our swimmers will gain experience and advance their skills through weekly practices and regular season swim meets. We’re excited to kickoff the season with a fun pizza party, where swimmers can get to know their coaches and checkout the pool, and, like season’s past, we’ll look forward to celebrating our swimmers’ many accomplishments at the annual swim banquet at the end of the season.

Favorite camp leaders are back again!
Get ready for another fantastic year of Southside Camp! Our campers will be thrilled that Alison Akers, Gabriela Olivero, and Jeff Carrus will be back again this year to lead our camp! This year will be another amazing experience available only to Southside residents! Campers must be season pass holders of the Southside Place Parks Department.
We offer a Pre-School (Small Room) camp for 4-5 year olds and a Big Room camp for those 6 years and up. Parents can place their 6 or 7 year old children in the Big Room and request a little extra attention to ensure a smooth transition from the Little Room.
If your family is not yet a season pass holder or if you have any other questions about camp, please contact Wadsworth Crews at firstname.lastname@example.org.
