The mini version of JUKO
Join us for the mini version of JUKO! This two week summer camp is for children ages 3-5. Each day we have tons of fun when we play games, read stories, make a cool craft, and eat lunch together!

Little JUKO Rules
We have a few rules at Little JUKO to keep everyone safe and camp running smoothly:
All Richmond Parks and Recreation summer programs have one main rule: NO HURTING!Please send your child in a swimsuit or clothes that they can get wet in along with a towel on Water Days.Please keep in contact with the Little JUKO staff regarding your child. Having an open line of communication will help us better care for your child.Children must wear tennis shoes to Little JUKO on all non-water days! This is important for us to reduce the risk of injury.Kids MUST check out with their Little JUKO counselors everyday before leaving.All children attending Little JUKO MUST be potty-trained.
Little JUKO Staff
All Little JUKO Camp Counselors and staff members attend training week prior to the start of camp covering topics such as developmental stages, recognizing child abuse, and psychological aspects of children. Additionally, our staffers pass police background checks and are CPR and First-Aid certified. Meet our JUKO Staff on Facebook in May!
Cancellations will be made on a case-by-case basis.. If Little JUKO is going to be cancelled due to inclement weather, information will be on G101.3. Information will also be on our Facebook.com/RichmondParks, and @RichmondInParks. You can also call the Park Office at 983-PARK (7275).
If it starts to rain during camp, Little JUKO campers will go inside the shelters at both the Springwood and Mary Scott locations, however, the shelter at Mary Scott Park is very small for the number of children we have. Therefore, we would recommend that you pick your child up early if it is raining during Little JUKO.
