April 30 is the deadline for parents to apply for Camp Kindergarten. 

Camp Kindergarten is a free K readiness program for all upcoming Hamilton County kindergarteners. Between June 3 and June 27 students will have the chance to check out their future classroom, meet teachers and classmates. The classes begin at 8:30 a.m and run until 2:00 in the afternoon.
