Norwoodville Summer Day Camp

The Summer Day Camp program takes place at the Norwoodville Community Center located at 3077 NE 46th Ave in Des Moines.   


Any child between the age of 6-12.  Youth who have completed 8th grade are not eligible.  If needed, ten (10) spots will be reserved for youth ages 11-12.

The program provides supervised recreational and educational activities for youth ages 6 through 12.  Youth that have completed 8th grade are not eligible.

Day camp is different from day care.  Day camp is for those children who enjoy the outdoors, like to stay busy playing organized games, doing crafts and who are able to function independently yet are able to follow instructions from day camp staff. 

Dates and times are June 7- Aug 13th from 7:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Children will be divided into four groups according to age and have the chance to dive into fun new activities every day. Camp will have age-appropriate ways to help children practice hand hygiene and stay safe.

Please bring completed registration, medical forms, and week one payment to the registration event. For additional information please call 515-266-5794.
