Snow Day Camp


When it's cold outside and schools are cancelled, bring your child to Day Camp for a fun Snow Day full of friendship, wonder and excitement with Owensboro Parks and Recreation. 


Pre-register for five days of camp and anytime that Owensboro Public schools, Daviess County Schools, or Owensboro Catholic Schools are out for a Snow Day your child can come to camp! If a state of emergency is declared, camp will not be held that day.


The registration fee is $70 for five pre-paid snow days due upon registering your child. If throughout the winter season your child's school district misses less than 5 days, $14 per day that your child's school did not miss for snow will be refunded. The deadline to register is November 21.
