ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. (WJHL) – Starting on July 6, the City of Elizabethton Parks and Recreation will be offering a series of seven consecutive weeks of summer camps – all contained in a box.

The boxes serve children grades Kindergarten through 5th Grade primarily, but there are three boxes that are geared towards children in grades 6-12.
