Held in partnership with the Great Bend Recreation Center, Aquatic Camp gets kids outside in the water hunting for the animals that live there. Children will collect animals, identify them and learn more about their lives in and out of the water. New this year, for those who can wear them, are child-size waders. Crafts and other activities round out the day.
Aquatic Camp is held on June 22, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with children transported by Great Bend Recreation. Register with the Rec Center by calling 620-282-0486. There is a fee for this camp.
