Registration is open for Peoria Unified families to register their child for KidZone’s Summer EdCamp program and Peoria Unified’s before and after school care for the 2021-22 school year.
Summer EdCamp is for families interested in a high-quality, engaging and safe opportunity for their kindergarten through eighth grade children during the summer, according to the district. The summer EdCamp program runs 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, May 26 through July 28 at Desert Valley, Foothills and Frontier elementary schools.
More than just a play experience, students who attend Summer EdCamp are exposed to many exciting experiences and activities, according to PUSD. They will hone skills in critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration, and have virtual field trips and in-person visitors from places such as the Arizona Science Center, Carter’s Farm, a Laser Tag Game Truck, and Legoland.
Families can also register their child for KidZone for the upcoming school year. KidZone is Peoria Unified’s before and after school program offered at specific schools. The program begins at 6 a.m. and lasts until school begins, and then continues from school dismissal time until 6 p.m.
Students must first be enrolled in a Peoria Unified school to attend one of these programs. For additional information, visit peoriaunified.org/kidzone.
