Summer Camps

The Dallas Park and Recreation Department takes pride in offering summer camp opportunities to youth in our communities. All of 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. 

Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, Dallas Park and Recreation camps will have limited spaces available and will only be open to Dallas residents.

Registration Information


This year the Dallas Park and Recreation Department will implement a new registration process. In an effort to keep campers and staff safe, our summer camp capacity limits have been reduced. Due to the reduced camp sizes, we expect demand to exceed capacity. In order 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 Saturday, May 1 - Friday May - 7th. There is not a fee to register for the lottery. You may register in person or online.

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.
