From registration to the last day of the session, the McLane Stadium Summer Camp makes sure campers are engaged in fun, challenging and educational activities. This non-specialty camp promises to give campers a variety of experiences they will be raving about until next summer.
Kids can participate in the camp, which is in its fourth year, in one of three sessions—June 22 – 26,
July 13 – 17, or July 27 – 31. Each session includes themed days, a pizza party and a water day complete with inflatable slides on the stadium’s football field.
Campers will also get the chance to hear from some special outside visitors during their week of fun.
“In the past we’ve had Waco PD and Waco Fire come and do demonstrations for the kids, D1 has come and set up an obstacle course on the field, and we’ve even had visitors from the Cameron Park Zoo who brought animals for the kids to see,” said Brock Meckelborg, McLane Stadium Operations Manager.
While the camp is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., parents have the option to pay a little extra for extended care, which allows children to be dropped off at 8 a.m. and picked up at 4 p.m.
“During that time, we watch a movie, give them a snack, and do some arts and crafts,” he said. “It’s a better option for parents who are working full-time or who work later in the day.”
Parents can also opt for their kids to eat lunch at camp for just $5 a day, which takes the guess work out of packing a lunch for their child each day.
And although registration for the camp has been open since Feb 1, the operations manager encourages parents to put their kids on the waiting list because the organizers try to get as many kids into the camp as possible.
“We’ve had so much fun doing this summer camp over the years, and we look forward to having another fun, successful summer with the campers,” Meckelborg said. “We hope to see you out there.”
