Enrollment is filled on a first come-first serve basis and enrollment is limited, the statement said.

The summer day camp for boys and girls from Pre-K (4) through eighth grade will operate in four two-week sessions beginning June 27 and concluding Aug. 19.

Sterling Park Day Camp, which has served children of the community for more than 65 years, offers indoor and outdoor physical and non-physical activities, including arts and crafts, sports, music, drama, games of skill, track and field events, swimming and community trips, the statement said.
