Department News & Updates

NEW: Student Support Camps To continue being offered to City employees & public

Great news for parents and students of first through six graders. Tulsa Parks will continue to offer Student Support Camps to City employees and the public.

These camps are situated at several different community centers and feature pod-style learning areas where kids can complete their virtual/distance learning coursework under the supervision of a support aide. They’re open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Please note: child will need to bring their own non-refrigerated lunch, a snack and all materials needed to complete their learning, like laptops, course materials, etc. Also, support aides aren’t teachers, but they will be there to supervise and assist children when possible and as needed.

There will be multiple COVID precautions in place, and there will be about 10 students per pod, with an Aide supervising each pod. Camps are expected to last through December, and we’ll re-evaluate based on need at that time.
