Send a Kid to Camp

The City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department offers a free seven-week summer camp at multiple park locations throughout the city for youth ages 6 to 13. Send A Kid to Camp will begin on Monday, June 6, 2022 and operate through Thursday, July 28, 2022. Camp will not be held the week of July 4th - July 8th in observance of Independence Day/week. All camp sites operate Monday thru Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m.

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.


Your child will be engaged in a structured and safe environment that provides a variety of physical and educational activities. Activities include arts and craft classes, sports clinics, fitness sessions, cultural and enrichment classes, games, and much more. Breakfast and lunch are provided at all SAKTC locations.
