Camp prices and descriptions:
The 2009 Mort Harris Recreation & Fitness Center Kids' camps for ages 4-6 yrs. / 7-10 yrs., utilizes our state of the art facilities to provide campers with the most exciting day-camp opportunity in the Detroit area. We look forward to having your child participate in our seventh year of this quality program. Our counselors organize programs according to the individual themes of each session to maximize the camping experience. Children will improve their physical fitness levels through well-rounded instruction and playtime including rock climbing, team building, outdoor games, learning activities, art projects and more. We have worked hard to improve the quality of our program and we are proud to provide a quality program to the Wayne State and local community.

Registration in advance is required to ensure proper counselor-camper ratios. You must register at least one week in advance. Payment is due in full by the FRIDAY before camp begins There will be no exceptions granted. This is so we can order the correct amount of lunches, reserve the right amount of spots for field trips, ensure the proper amount of staff and have the correct amount of supplies each week for camp.

Registration is on a first-come, first serve basis. We will not reserve a spot for your child without payment in full.
