Oklahoma City-area groups plan summer camps, classes
Enrollment is open for Oklahoma City-area camps covering sports, hobbies and academic subjects.
Prices for the sports camps range from $45 to $65 per week.
Also at OCCC, students in grades 1 through 8 can go to college. The “College for Kids” guide lists 22 creative arts, 22 humanities, 19 science and seven math classes, scheduled in blocks each week like a college schedule.
Subjects include recycled art, personal finance, sign language, ukulele and piano lessons, musical theater and astronomy. Each student can take up to four classes each day, and different classes are offered nearly every week in June and July. Most weeklong classes cost $39.

A decidedly lower-tech experience for first through fifth graders will happen at the Harn Homestead from Monday through June 8. The living history site will offer activities related to Oklahoma agriculture and cultural history, as well as summer crafts and games at 1721 N Lincoln Blvd. The camp will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day, and care is available before and after for a fee. The cost is $40 per day or $125 for the week. Registration will only be open through Friday. For more information, call 235-4058 or go to www.
Oklahoma City Zoo
Many camps are open for enrollment at the Oklahoma City Zoo. Children ages 3-15 can take classes based on age group. Each camp explores types of animals or aspects of the natural world. One class for 3-year-olds examines the different shapes of zoo animals. Older kids can learn what it's like to be a zookeeper and explore the many fields of zoology. Each half-day camp lasts four days, and new camps will be offered nearly every week from June 5 to Aug. 10. It costs $110 each week for nonmembers. To see all the classes and to register, go to www.
Boys and Girls Club
The Boys and Girls Club is gearing up to host kids ages 6-18, split among three age groups, in its activity center at 3535 N Western Ave. For a one-time membership fee of $5, kids can spend their summer rotating between the club's art, computer, game, technology and book rooms in addition to its gym and park grounds. Organizers are planning several field trips each week to recreational spots across the city, which members can join for a small fee.
Space is limited, however, and the club can only support 375 campers per day. From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every weekday, the activities are free to members, but care also is provided from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. for an additional fee. To learn more and enroll, go to www.
