Summer Camp Registration Information
This year the Dallas Park and Recreation Department will utilize 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 20 – Saturday, March 25. There is not a fee to register for the lottery. You may register for the lottery 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.
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.
Teen Camp gives youth ages 13-15 an alternative to just staying home or “hanging out” unsupervised. At a time when peer pressure is intense, we want to give youth the opportunity to be involved in a positive environment and show them that it is “OK” to still be a kid and have fun "playing" every once in a while! At the same time, our teen camps foster leadership development by giving participants the opportunity to help with decision making, planning and activity coordinating. Your teen will have the opportunity to learn and improve problem solving, communication, and interpersonal relationship skills.
