Day Camps

The Dallas Park and Recreation Department takes pride in offering out of school time recreational opportunities to youth in our communities. Our camps will keep your child engaged in a safe and fun environment that will have them wanting to come back for more. See the tabs below for opportunities available through the Dallas Park and Recreation Department. 

Registration Information


This year the Dallas Park and Recreation Department will implement a lottery registration process. We expect demand to exceed capacity. To allow everyone interested in summer camp an equal opportunity at obtaining a spot, we will be conducting Summer Camp registration through a lottery system. Lottery registration will be open Monday, March 28, 2022 - Saturday, April 2, 2022. There is not a fee to register for the lottery. You may register in person or online. Find more registration information here

If space is still available at a recreation center camp, registration can be done onsite, or online. Online registration closes at 12pm the Friday before the camp week starts. If space is available, registrations after 12pm the Friday before the camp week starts, must be made in person, at the recreation center providing the camp. First come, first served. Please contact your recreation center to check for availability.



Program Benefits
Our camps provide opportunities for children to disconnect from technology and become more physically active. Campers experience success and become more confident by participating in team and individual activities and develop a life skill and interest in something they had little to no experience in. In addition, our campers become more independent by learning to do things on their own all while improving their social skills and making lasting friendships.
