TULSA, Okla. -

Sessions begin for a special Tulsa Parks camp to help students who are learning away from the classroom this school year.

Tulsa Parks Student Support Camps will give students pod-style learning areas where they can do their virtual learning school work with supervision and help. The camps will also offer fitness, STEM, and art classes, which students can rotate through each session. It initially started out for children of city employees but is now open to the public.

The camps are for 1st through 6th graders at five different community centers, one of which the city said is already full. Tulsa Parks said it will have multiple COVID precautions in place, including only about 10 students per pod with an aide supervising each pod.

The camps cost $25 a week. They're open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. They’re expected to last through December and the city will re-evaluate based on need at that time.

The city's website shows enrollment is closed for this first week of sessions, but still open for other weeks.
