Summer camp programs in Montgomery County will be extended to support families without childcare options due to the later start time of the school year, according to a press release from Montgomery County Government.
The County’s press release includes a statement from County Executive Ike Leggett,
“The later start of the school year presented a challenge for many hard-working families who may not have an option to take additional time off from work,” said Leggett. “Extending the summer camp offerings is an example of how our Recreation Department and Public Schools work together to ensure our children have the highest quality of programs and services and demonstrates how the County supports families who are juggling many responsibilities.”
