SUMFUN Summer Day Camp


Churchill County Parks and Recreation is proud to offer the annual SUMFUN Summer Day Camp Program.  SUMFUN is ten weeks of summer day camp beginning June 9 and ending August 15, 2014. Camp is open to youth 6 to 12 years of age from 7:30am to 6:00pm Monday through Friday. Each week includes a theme, snacks, games, activities, crafts, field trips and swimming.

Pre-registration for each week is required (Registration begins May 1 - $85 per week, "drop in" $25 per day and there will be a one time registration fee of $15 (on first child only) which includes a SUMFUN T-shirt).

If you have any questions regarding the SUMFUN program, please contact our Camp Director, Sarah Grittmann by e-mail or call her at (775) 427-5668.

*A fee reduction program is available for families who qualify for assistance, for the SUMFUN program, Contact Churchill County Social Services.


Families can pay for the entire summer upfront and avoid the hassle of weekly registration (Includes all 10 weeks, Wild Island Trips and much more). This payment method saves the family $170 over the entire summer. For more information, call the Parks and Recreation Office.

We do swimming on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. If you have any questions regarding swimming please feel free to contact our office at (775) 423-7733 or the Indoor Pool at (775) 423-7091.

New for 2014!!!
SUMFUN for 6, 7, 8th grade students!

Summer is fast approaching, and we'd like to offer your older kids something to get them out of the house for at least one day a month! This year, we're offering a Tuesday field trip, once a month, for students entering the 6th, 7th, or 8th grades. These trips will be different from the places our SUMFUN day camp visits. The third Tuesday of every month we will take a school bus out of town to either a baseball game, movie, miniature golf, bowling, rock climbing, or laser tag. Your student does not have to attend the SUMFUN program to join us!

Dates (trip locations and departure times TBD)
June 24-
July 22-
August 19-
If your student is currently registered in SUMFUN for the week: $15  
If your student would like to attend for just that Tuesday: $35  

StaffStart: Camp Counselor Tomorrow

This junior counselor program will prepare 13 - 14 year olds for potential future camp counselor training and employment as a camp counselor.  The StaffStart program helps participants build a foundation of knowledge, attitudes and skills they will need to be responsible counselors for youth programs.  Lessons are grouped into five main areas: behaviors, response, mentoring, leadership, and professionalism.  A volunteer internship as a Junior Counselor will be offered during the summer for those who complete the course, mentored by our professional Camp Staff.  Participants receive a t-shirt, participant manual, Community CPR/AED/First Aid certification, and free admission to the indoor swimming pool while participating in the internship.
