County offering holiday camps for kids

Henry County is offering a recreational venue, geared toward giving area children a unique way to spend the last two weeks of the year.

The county's Parks and Recreation Department will hold two Christmas Break Day Camps, for children ages 6 to 12. They are set to coincide with the Henry County School System's holiday break.

Camp hours are from 7:30 a.m., to 6 p.m. The first camp will be held Dec. 19, to Dec. 22, at a cost of $80 per child. The second week of camp is scheduled for Dec. 27, to Dec. 29, and costs $60.

Registration will be held on weekdays until Dec. 18, from 9 a.m., to 4 p.m.

Camps will be held at Heritage Park, in McDonough; the J. P. Moseley Recreation Center, in Stockbridge; and the Fairview Recreation Center, in Stockbridge.

The camps will include games and activities, including a bowling field trip on Dec. 21, and a New Year's party at J. P. Moseley Recreation Center, on Dec. 27.

Prospective participants can register in person at Heritage Park, or at any of the county's three recreation centers, or online at www.hcprd.org
