Sk8way summer camp
The Smoky Mountain Sk8way & FUN ZONE will be hosting a summer camp from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. June 15 to Aug. 7 in Waynesville.
The Sk8way has once again partnered with area teachers and specialists to offer a fun, affordable, healthy and safe summer day camp experience for kids who've finished kindergarten through sixth grade. With “Skate, Learn, Play” as the theme, this year the summer camp has gone the extra mile to become an officially licensed camp by the State of North Carolina which allows them to accept subsidized payments from Southwestern Child Development.
The Sk8way has also added a 5,000-square foot outdoor park for the kids to play in, new games, field trips and daily activities, as well as a nutritious breakfast and lunch provided by the Haywood County School System.
The camp offers flexible scheduling to work with parent’s schedules and summer vacations. Camp hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Full time enrollment (4-5 days a week) is $110 and part time is $90 (1-3 days a week). Parents can choose the days and weeks they want their child to attend. Part-time campers are accepted according to availability. There is a $60 enrollment fee to reserve your child’s space for summer and comes with a camp T-shirt that the campers are asked to wear on the off site activity days. Registration is currently under way.
