The first 25 kids to get into this Summer Camp will have a blast.

Texarkana, Texas Parks and Recreation puts this camp on every year. The kids get to go on field trips and do fun activities at the Southwest Center. When you pick your child up in the afternoon, they will have had a fun time and should be tired from all of the play time.

Here are some of the activities the kids will do this summer:

  • Discovery Place
  • Splash Pad in Spring Lake Park
  • Movie Theater
  • Scavenger Hunts at Area Parks
  • Tour Fire Station
  • Bowling
  • Guest Speakers
  • Play Sports
