While that may be wishful thinking, it is time to sign up for summer camps! With Spring Break Camps wrapping up this week, some camps are opening for enrollment next week for the summer. 2-1-1 is your one stop shop to learn about Summer Feeding Programs as well as Summer Camps. The children of Marion County are going to be on break, but most of the parents won’t be. We will be updating this page as agencies release their summer camp information, so bookmark this page and check back weekly. Summer Break Feeding spots will be released when school lets out for summer, so check back with us in late May for the location closest to you.
