Summer Camp in Miami Gives Kids an Opportunity to Stay Active This Summer

Updated:

Summer is in full swing, and for kids in Miami that means summer camp.

Almost 300 campers enrolled this year.

Organizers say programs like this are important while kids are out of school.


"We are really here to keep kids off the street," says camp coordinator Jeanie Siegrist, "They're too old to go to daycare but they're almost too young to stay at home by themselves without getting into some type of trouble."

The campers say they like summer camp a little more than being in the classroom.

"School you have to do a bunch of work and only get to go outside for fifteen minutes," says camper Houston Lafalier, "This you get to be outside all day and play games."

"It's awesome," says camper Taylor Lockner, "I have a bunch of new friends that I can come and hang out with and the sports are unbelievably fun."

Siegrist says that not only do the kids enjoy the program, but the parents appreciate it as well.

"I had a guy walk up to us this morning just thank you so much for camp we don't know what we would have done with our kids, they wouldn't have had anywhere to go."


The program is free for kids in Miami, and with buses that pick kids up at bus stops all around town, it's easy to get to.

Campers say they plan on being back for the fun for years to come.

Camp will run through this friday.
