PRNA is your best option for Camp fun at each summer! Through diverse and exciting programs, PRNA offers something for everyone. Traditional camps such as our Playground program offer daily fun at eight different sites each summer. Campers can enjoy a fun-filled summer among the backdrop of one of our beautiful parks located around the Tallahassee area. Also in the multi-purpose camp arena is our historic 50-year old Playcamp program located in the heart of old Tallahassee in the Lafayette park area.
If you're looking for something different, try out our Arts and Crafts camp located at the Lafayette Arts & Crafts center. Creative theme weeks and exposure to all kinds of arts will keep the creative busy all summer.
