Discover Summer Camp Options at the 2019 Summer Camps Fair

Get a jump on summer as the Grand Rapids Kids team hosts the second annual Summer Camps Fair on Sunday, March 17, 2019 from 1-4 PM in conjunction with The Salvation Army Kroc Center.

Free Afternoon of Fun Includes Kroc Center Pass

Parents and kids alike will be treated to a free afternoon of fun. Peruse the many different West Michigan camp options available this summer, with many camps offering hands-on activities and experiences at their stations.

The Summer Camps Fair is open-house style, with families receiving a complimentary Kroc Center day pass for each person in attendance after completing their Camp Checklist.

Families will need to return on a different day to redeem their Kroc Center passes. When they do, they will be welcome to enjoy the aquatics center, climbing wall, gymnasium, and more.

Interact with Camps, Meet a Princess or a Mascot…

Many of the camps are bringing interactive elements.

Last year, John Ball Zoo brought animals, we had a pony, there was a slime station, and more. This year, we’re planning on a meet and greet station with a couple of princessesand mascots (we’ll reveal their identity as soon as we know!)

You Might Win a Free Week at Camp – or a Year of GoGo Squeez!

Giveaways, including a free week of camp at the Kroc Center, will also be part of the event. Plus, visitors that complete the camp fair checklist will be entered to win a year of GoGo Squeez!

“As the area’s premier source of information for families, we’re excited to move from the world wide web into real life,” said Melody Vanderweide, founder of GRKIDS. “This is an amazing opportunity for parents to connect face to face with a variety of camps from the area and choose those that are a great fit for their children.”
