Tulsa Parks Student Support Camps
Tulsa Parks is now opening up Student Support Camp spots to Tulsa residents with children needing daytime supervision while they complete their virtual and distance learning. Spots are open to Tulsa children, grades first through sixth, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays.
Each camp is designed to ensure each child’s distance/virtual learning needs are met, while providing a safe environment for them to complete their coursework and learning in. Children will be monitored in socially distanced “pods” with one adult per average of 10 kids. To keep everyone safe, there will be daily COVID questionnaires, temperature checks, and masks will be mandatory for children and staff. A $25 registration fee per week, per child is required to hold your spot.
To register, visit www.cityoftulsa.org/camps and click “Enroll Online” and login/create your account to get started.
To launch this effort, Tulsa Parks is hiring school support aides to help staff these camps. If you or someone you know has teaching or childcare experience and needs work, call (918) 596-7275. Positions are full-time, temporary positions, that pay $12/hour.
The current plan is to continue these camps until Dec. 23, 2020, at which time the program will be reevaluated based on need and school schedule changes.
