The La Vista Public Library and the La Vista Community Center are partnering this summer to present six summer reading mini-camps entitled “Fizz Bang Boom La Vista!”

The camps cost a non-refundable fee of $5 per child per camp. Space is limited, and registration is now open.

Although the camps are, in part, through the city’s library, a library card is not required to participate.

“Foodology,” the first camp, will be held June 3 through June 5 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the La Vista Community Center. The camp is open to students ages 7 to 10 and will explore recipes and cooking techniques while allowing children to play games and interact with special guests.

The second camp, “Music, Movement & Me,” will explore music and movement through activities, crafts and more. The camp is open to children ages 4 to 7 and will meet from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. June 10 through June 12 at the La Vista Public Library.

“Color Palooza” will run from 1 to 3 p.m. June 24 through June 26 at the library and at La Vista’s Central Park. The program is open to children ages 5 to 10 and will use games, crafts and art projects to learn about all things color. Children may get messy and should wear old clothing.

The first July camp will be “Sports & Games,” held at the community center on July 1 through July 3 from 1 to 3 p.m. The camp is designed for children ages 4 to 10 to learn new games and get active during the summer.

Children ages 7 to 10 are welcome to participate in “Spy,” a camp held from July 15 through July 17 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the library. The camp will include top secret briefings and activities to test students’ spy skills.

“Wacky & Weird Science,” the final camp of the series, will run from July 22 through July 24 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the library. The camp is open to children ages 5 to 10 and presents weird and wacky science experiments that can be recreated at home.
