Are you ready for Summer Camp? It is never too early to start thinking about what adventures your child will be attending this summer. Although each child is a unique individual, we believe summer camp is beneficial for all kids. No matter what your child’s interests are, camp helps children develop important social, emotional, and cognitive skills. Best of all, children create memories that last a lifetime at camp!
Kernersville Parks and Recreation Summer Camp will run 8 weeks, June 13 – August 12. Our camp offers visits to local parks, swimming, sports, field trips, and more! We are excited to see your child this summer!

Shelter reservations for the 2022 season are now open for the rental season! Here are a couple of notes to keep in mind:
You will need to create an account or log in to your account to make a reservation. We have transitioned to a new registration system as of October 2021, so your account may not have transferred over.
Reservations for the shelters at Fourth of July Park and Harmon Park can be completed fully online; the Leo Burke Gazebo and the Farmers Market Shelter are on the request basis.
Shelter prices are $40 for half-day (10AM – 3PM or 4PM-9PM) and $80 for a full day (10AM -9PM). The gazebo and the Farmers Market shelter are different prices.
This season we only have four shelters available to reserve: three at Fourth of July Park and one at Harmon Park. The two shelters at Civitan Park will be unavailable as the park is still being renovated. You can make a reservation online or over the phone.
