Summer Camp for Kids
Parker Parks and Recreation has fun and exciting summer offerings for kids ages 3 to 18! Kids will have a blast learning new things, improving their skills and bettering their overall fitness level.
Youth Enrichment Camps like Chess Wizards Summer Camp, Scratch Coding Summer Camp and Minecraft Summer Camp allow kids ages 5 to 13 to work their brain muscles while they play and strategize at chess, program their own games and animation, and express their creativity through the endless possibilities of Minecraft.
Speed and Agility Summer Camps are for boys and girls of all skill levels and sports. Led by our nationally certified coach, these camps enable young athletes to develop explosive power and increase vertical jump, strength, flexibility and overall speed, while decreasing the risk of injury.
The Kids’ Zone offers a variety of camps for ages 3 to 11 designed to enrich your child’s life, grow healthy self-esteem and improve social skills. This summer, kids can play sports, read new books, learn to cook and more! Your youngster will have a blast in the Kids’ Zone.
Does your child love to play sports? Kids ages 4 to 18 can learn about sportsmanship, build their social skills and stay active during summer break. Camps include basketball, fencing, lacrosse, skateboarding, soccer, softball, tennis and volleyball. Jedi Training Camp will teach trainees how to wield a lightsaber, fight off the evil Sith warriors and save the universe! Designed for true indoor lacrosse instruction, the Langtry Summer Camp teaches skills and tactics related to all aspects of the lacrosse game taught by All-American and 2003 NLL Rookie of the Year, Brian Langtry. The Chauncey Billups Basketball Academy gives young players a chance to take part in a camp led by five-time NBA All-Star Chauncey Billups and his camp coaches.
