The mini version of JUKO
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 crafts, and eat lunch together! Each day, the children receive lunch prepared by Richmond Community Schools through the USDA Summer Food Service Program (Exceptions for lunches are only made for medical reasons that have supporting verification, i.e. doctor’s note. Please indicate on your registration form if your child is lactose intolerant under medical information). We also learn silly songs, and have fun with dress-up days and fire sprays. This year’s theme, Little JUKO Explores Down on the Farm!, brings with it many great crafts, songs, and special programs for the camp! Join us as we learn about all kinds of little bugs at camp!

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.

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.
