10 Summertime Day Camps Where You Can Ditch Your Kids

Posted By on Mon, Jun 13, 2016 at 2:55 PM

We can all agree that summer’s great. Long sunny days, endless glasses of sweet tea and time spent with family. It’s for sure your kids’ favorite time of year, but while the whole no school thing may be a big hit for them, for parents it’s a whole different story. If finding a place to entertain your kids for the day sounds something like a relief, we’ve got a few guilt-free suggestions where your kids can spend the day having fun while you do you.

Summer Art Studios at the Southwest School of Art
300 Augusta St.
Dates: June 6–Aug.19
Ages: 5-18 

With over 100 different classes to choose from, the Southwest School of Art’s nurturing, creative and fun environment offers daily entertainment for kids ages 5-18. Each class is taught by a real artist and art educators, and extended care is available for parents who work. For the kid who loves art, this camp is better than they could have ever drawn up.

Summer Camp at the Alamo
300 Alamo Plaza
Dates: July 18– 22, 2016
Ages: 9-13

If your 9-13 year old is into history or particularly interested in wearing those furry Davy Crockett hats, this camp is a great fit. Campers engage in the history of the Texas Revolution in conjunction with the Alamo, participating in historically accurate activities and learning what it’s like to live in Texas in the 1830’s—though this time around there’s air conditioning.
