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 Zoo is hosting animal adventure summer camps for pre-kindergarteners through eighth-graders during July and early August. Single day camps are July 6-8 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. and include Feline Frenzy, Bird Brains and That’s Bananas! Primate Explorations. All three days are filling quickly, so sign up soon. Little Howlers, Discover Africa and Critter Connections are a few of the weeklong adventures that the zoo also is offering through August.
Or, take them to the Oak Cliff YMCA’s Camp Wickiup, an all-day experience that features outdoor and indoor activities while promoting new friendships, self-confidence and the value of teamwork. The YMCA is also offering family camps for a weekend of camping with the family, and overnight camps with water skiing, wakeboarding, sailing, canoeing, hiking and horseback riding.
