With schools closing soon for spring break, parents are busy exploring places and programs to keep their youngsters energized during their annual hiatus. In Dallas, there are hundreds of camps, outings, workshops and specialty groups where youth can enrich their academics or perfect their athletic skills or discover a new hobby. Often, the cost per child for some of these programs isn’t in many families' budgets.
To ease some family costs, Fair Park invites kids of all ages to spend a week painting, playing and learning leadership skills – all for free!
Spring Break at Fair Park is March 13–17. Daily activities starting at 9 a.m. will fill young imaginations with scavenger hunts around the Esplanade, MyFi fitness workouts, lawn games and a Camp Fire Leadership Program for middle school youth.
With help from the American Institute of Architects, the hands-on Build Your City will give aspiring designers experience creating a city from the ground up. Future Van Goghs and Frida Kahlos will enjoy painting outside on the lawn for the always popular Punch-n-Paint.
Visit fairpark.org to see the entire list of Spring Break activities.
We look forward to seeing you at Fair Park!
