. Greenville Rec has 2 major goals for summer camps: Fun & Safety. Another major factor is Convenience. We added on-line registration in 2012 as well as including our swimming fees in the price of camp. For 2013 we have added another convenience. All extra fees are now included in our price. This means that we will never ask parents for field trip money, money for field day, and all pizza parties are included. Of course, our campers will continue to enjoy all of our typical activities swimming, game playing, and arts & crafts projects. Our swimming trips will include Discovery Island Water Park, Otter Creek Water Park, 7th Inning Splash Water Park. Field trips will have visits to Gattitown, the Greenville Drive, and bowling & skating. .
