Prosper’s lineup of upcoming summer camps promises to provide so much indoor and outdoor fun, lively mental challenges, entertaining magical intrigue, and all-around enjoyment and delight, that kids will resist missing even one day.
Joining the traditional outdoor sports-related camps will be Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) enrichment programs, and magic camp to provide a full array of engaging, fulfilling programming. Descriptions, dates, times, locations, and rates are available at www.prosperparksandrec.org with camps beginning the week of June 7.
“It’s an exciting time at Parks and Recreation,” said Dudley Raymond, Director of Parks and Recreation. “The increased interest in programs, both inside and outside, tells us it will be a really fun summer for kids in Prosper as recreation returns to family life.”
Financial assistance for Prosper kids to attend camps is available through the Parks and Recreation Scholarship Program. Applications in English and Spanish can be found at www.prospertx.gov and www.prosperparksandrec.org or at 409 E. First Street. Scholarships are funded by donations as well as the proceeds from the Kids’ Christmas Shoppe, set for another run during the 2021 Prosper Christmas Festival scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 4 at Prosper Town Hall.
