Summer is fast approaching and with that comes the end of the school year. Which means, now is the time to start looking for summer camps and making plans on what your children will be doing all summer.

We also offer specialty camps for kids who love sports, dance and the great outdoors. These camps typically last one week with a variety of camps scheduled each week throughout the summer. Specialty Camp dates, times, age ranges and costs vary according to each program.

“Our children attend Summer Camp at Gull Point and the friendliness of the staff is one of the biggest factors. We, along with our children, love Miss Maggie and have had great experiences with Mr. Alex at Vickery Center as well. The camp counselors not only do a great job planning and coordinating fun activities with the kids, but also do a commendable job with conflict resolution when issues arise (as they always will with kids). Pensacola Parks provides a remarkable value for our city residents with the wide range of activities at a very reasonable price. These summer programs are a valuable part of the community and I highly recommend their programs.”
