Can you believe it's almost March already? And that means spring break! Doesn't it seem to catch us all by surprise every year? And then it's a mad scramble to figure out what to do with kids who are out of school for a week while you still have to go to work. Luckily, Arlington Parks and Recreation has several locations around the city that offer a variety of great camp options for that week.

Full Day Camp is for kids age 5 -12. It offers sports, crafts, games and they'll even go on a field trip one day. Fee is $110 which includes an afternoon snack. Offered at Cliff Nelson Recreation Center (CNRC), Dottie Lynn Recreation Center (DLRC) and Hugh Smith Recreation Center (HSRC).

For the older kids "too cool" for traditional day camp, there X-Treme Teen Camp. Kids age 11-15 enjoy several field trips and great activities for the days they stay at the center. Fee is $135. Offered at CNRC and DLRC. Counselor in Training (CIT)will be offered at CNRC giving your teen the opportunity to develop future employment skills while working with our day campers. For ages 13 - 15, fee is $50.

Need a place for the kids to go for just part of the day? Mini Camps offered for three hours in either the morning or afternoon are a great option. CNRC campers choose from Hip Hop Dance or Soccer from 9 am - noon and Clay Creations from 1 - 4 pm. At DLRC kids can enjoy Wacky Science 9 am - noon or Cooking 101 from 1-4 pm. Fees range from $70 - $85.

The Preschool Camp Art, Science & Music will be held at DLRC on the Monday, Wednesday and Friday of spring break from 9:30 - 11:30 am. Fee is $40

At Elzie Odom Athletic Center (EOAC) kids will get to experience some Spring Sports Madness. They'll get to spend the break playing wiffleball, kickball, basketball, soccer, flag football, roller skating and other fun sports. For ages 5 - 13; fee is $110.

Arlington Tennis Center (ATC) also offers spring break camps. The 10 and under Quickstart program uses "right-sized" courts, nets and racquets for younger players. Beginner camps for ages 11 - 16 introduce the fundamentals of tennis in a fun and games format. Performance Camp for ages 11 - 16 are designed for advanced, high school and qualified players. All camps are taught by USPTA certified professional.

Spring Break for AISD this year is March 12 - 16. For more information on any of these camps visit naturallyfun.org or call 817-459-5474.
