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.
Your child will be engaged in a variety of physical and educational and leadership activities. Activities include arts and craft classes, sports clinics, fitness sessions, cultural and enrichment classes, games, and much more. (Due to COVID-19 precautions, campers will not go on field trips this summer.)
Our summer camps start dates will vary based on the school district that aligns with the Recreation Center. Recreation Centers that align with Dallas Independent School District will begin on Monday, June 21st, 2021 and will run through Friday, August 13th, 2021.
