Late Registration: $105 (May 1 and after)

Weekly Camp Fee: $140.00/child

Session fees must be paid by the payment deadline (ten days prior to the start of the camp session you are paying for). Your child's spot in camp is not secured until full payment for that week is received. There are limited spots available each week of camp and if you miss the deadline, there is not guarantee we can accommodate and get your child into camp for the week needed.

Payment for the session can be made prior to the deadline date, in fact, it is encouraged. We have the payment deadline in place to ensure we schedule enough staff to meet our set counselor to staff ratios and ensure spots on the busses and at fieldtrips.

Payments can be made online or in-person to 425 NE Mock Ave Blue Springs, Mo 64014. Checks made payable to Blue Springs Parks and Recreation.
