PROSPER (April 4, 2022) Plan to sign up the kids for camp in Prosper this summer! Parks and Recreation offers a lineup of indoor and outdoor fun in June, July, and August for kids of all ages! Camps provide fun with sports, brain stimulating challenges, entertaining magic, and performance art skills.
Back by popular demand are several sports camps: baseball, basketball, beginner golf, dodgeball, flag football, multi-sport, speed sports and tennis. Bricks4Kidz (LEGO models) and Engineering for Kids return with several stimulating camps including 3D Printing and Minecraft. Chess, science, and magic round out the summer STEM offerings.
Full camp descriptions, dates, times, locations, and rates are available at http://www.prosperparksandrec.org/. Camps begin the week of May 31.
“We are excited about our summer camp offerings and look forward to record numbers again this year!” said Dan Baker, Director of Parks and Recreation. “We believe kids will enjoy the fun camps at home in Prosper this summer, filled with great experiences and memories,” he added.
