It is officially summer, which means kids are officially bored. Here are a few options in our neighborhood to keep the restless vacationers entertained:
The Dallas Children’s Theater is hosting summer classes for kids ages 4 and up at the Rosewood Center for Family Arts. Taught by theater professionals, the hands-on workshops include Drama Days, Join the Circus, The Magic of Marionettes and Laugh Out Loud.
Or, try Kidventure’s Camp Dallas Academy. Open to kids who have completed kindergarten to 13 years old, the day camp is held at The Dallas Academy adjacent to White Rock Lake from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. The camp, which takes pride in its high safety standards, low counselor-to-camper ratios and highly trained staff, costs $200 per camper.
Take them to the Lake Highlands YMCA for a day camp, overnight camp or a sports clinic. At Camp Maranatha, kids ages 5-12 spend the day participating in weekly themed adventures, like Space Odyssey or Jungle Jam, that are developed to build self-confidence and teach the value of teamwork. Overnight camp activities include water skiing, wakeboarding, sailing, canoeing, hiking and horseback riding. Sports clinics, featuring themes like basketball, martial arts and aquatics, help kids ages 4-12 develop athletic skills while promoting sportsmanship and teamwork.
Finally, try the arts camp for students entering first- through sixth-grade at Lake Highlands Presbyterian Church. The camp is from 8:30 a.m.-noon July 25-29 and costs $50.
