Central Texas kids can almost feel the sun on their faces and the turf of the football field under their feet because it’s almost time for another year of fun at the McLane Stadium Summer Camp.
“We have built a reputation of being a friendly and fun environment where kids can come play while mom and dad are away,” said Brock Meckelborg, McLane Stadium operations and events manager.
Meckelborg said he thinks the camp receives positive reviews because they have a structured schedule that is built around trying a little bit of everything.
“It’s five days of summer fun where kids get to create artwork, learn about different subjects and have visits from different groups like the zoo and the Dr. Pepper Museum,” he said.
Camp will take place in three sessions—Jun. 6-10, Jun. 20-24, and July 11-15. Each day will begin at 9 a.m. and go to 2 p.m. Parents also have the option to drop their children off at 8 a.m. for an additional fee.
Another draw to the camp is water day at the end of each week. Kids get the chance to play on inflatable water slides on the field inside McLane Stadium and have a pizza party lunch.
Along with a focus on entertainment and enrichment, the operations and events manager said the camp organizers are big on safety.
“Communication with the parents is huge to us,” he said. “We do email updates, and we post on a private Facebook group (one for each session) where parents can see what their kids are doing all week.”
The camp is still looking for guest speakers and sponsors to make the camp experience the best one yet. If you have a kid-friendly business and you’d like to be a part of the fun, contact Meckelborg at email@example.com or (254) 710-8104.
