You would think that they were all waiting for a Black Friday deal. But this was probably a deal better than any other Black Friday sale. Parents were waiting in line to register their children in one of the slots at fro the Tampa Parks and Recreation Summer camps at Kate Jackson Park. These spots go fast and even though registration was opened at 6 p.m. on March 23, 2009 so parents waited in line from at early as 5 a.m.
The city of Tampa has some of the most affordable rates for summer camps in Tampa Bay. Fees for the summer camp start at $70 and then are as low as $15 for those that qualify for the reduced fee because of finances. With some private summer camps running costing hundreds of dollars this is definitely a deal worth waiting for. Registration is ongoing and there are still spaces empty in some of the city of Tampa’s summer camps.
