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.  

Registration Information

Summer Camp registration begins Saturday April 6th at all recreation center from 9am - 5pm. Online registration begins Monday, April 8th. Online registration will require parents to contact the recreation center for Parent Meeting information as well as fill out registration forms prior to the first day of camp.
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.
