Kingsport offering Specialty Camps during Summer Break
Kingsport’s Parks and Recreation Department is offering four “specialty camps” for children this summer, each with its own unique theme, including camps for gamers, builders, cyclers and athletes.
“We’re trying out some new camps this year to add some variety with our summer programming,” said Program Administrator Renee Ensor, “we believe the kids will love them.”
The four new specialty camps include:
LEGO Camp: June 12-15 from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Kingsport Civic Auditorium. For children ages 6-12 (limit 10 campers) at a cost of $80 per child. Participants will get to keep a 1,000 piece LEGO set.
