PARD offers free summer camps

Wednesday, June 10, 2020 by Tai Moses

Kids (and parents) who are looking at the prospect of a long hot summer stretching out in front of them may rejoice at this news: The Austin Parks and Recreation Department will be holding free summer programs starting July 6. A wide range of summer programming includes Stay Playful camps, Stay Creative camps, kayaking and biking, and family park activities. And for those reluctant to start in-person activities, the Austin Nature & Science Center has some online-only options weekdays in July. Since the summer camps are observing social distancing requirements, a lottery system will be used to select participants for weekly sessions. Austin residents may register online for the weekly lottery starting at 10 a.m. on June 15. Find more information about PARD’s summer camp programming, as well as registration details and schedules, here.
