May the odds be EVER in your favor

At this time of the year, competition runs high to get into the favorite summer camps.  The Golden Community Center’s summer camp is open to kids aged 5-12 years.  Golden residents get first crack at the spots for this camp, and acceptance is determined through a lottery.  The lottery for residents will take place this Monday and Tuesday, March 7-8.  The lottery for non-residents will be March 14-15.  If you hope to enroll your child in this camp, make sure you submit your child’s emergency packet and immunization records ahead of time.  Click here for more information.
